Measures to help beat the heat in the coming days

In order to make it easier for everyone to tolerate the heat wave forecast for the next few days, the City of Pointe-Claire will extend opening hours for the splash pad and air-conditioned municipal buildings, as well as add to the services offered at the Aquatic Centre and during Canada Day festivities for the health and safety of residents.

Extended opening hours for the Valois Park splash pad

From Friday, June 29 to Tuesday, July 3 inclusively, the splash pad will be accessible from 7 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Exceptional opening hours for air-conditioned municipal buildings

The Aquatic Centre, Central Library, and Arena lobby will be accessible on Sunday, July 1, from 12 to 8 p.m. for everyone to cool down. On Monday, July 2, the Aquatic Centre and Central Library will return to regular opening hours: 5:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. respectively.

From Sunday to Tuesday inclusively, new family swim hours will be added on Sunday from 12 to 8 p.m., and Monday and Tuesday from 1:30 to 9:30 p.m. Admission is free for residents with a MULTI Card.

Canada Day activities

The program schedule at Alexandre-Bourgeau and Pointe-Claire Village has been updated to replace high-intensity activities with some that are less strenuous. The Zumba activity and volleyball tournament have been cancelled as a precaution.

Refreshment areas will be added, and water stations will be set up in various locations starting at 2 p.m.

Reusable water bottles and ice pops will be handed out at the City Councillors’ tent starting at 4:30 p.m. at Édouard-Paiement Park.

The eco-grazing sheep will stay at the farm on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. The situation will then be re-assessed depending on the weather forecasts.
