Having a splash in Memorial Park
Elena Eduarte and Sidney Frescas beat the heat on Tuesday by swimming around the wading pool in Claremont’s Memorial Park. The pool was closed for two years due to the drought but the city decided to reopen it this year. Hours are 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday until August 11. The year’s first big heat wave is in full swing this week the temperatures predicted to reach 100 on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The city has also added free shuttle service for Claremont residents from both El Barrio Park and Wheeler Park. Shuttles run Monday through Friday from June 19 through July 7. There is no shuttle or wading pool availability on July 3 or 4 for the holiday.
From Wheeler Park on Vista Drive, pick-up is 11 a.m. return at 2 p.m. From El Barrio Park, 400 Claremont Blvd., pick-up is at 11:15 a.m. and drop off at 1:45 p.m. COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff
