Due to the heat, a special schedule will be in effect at Baltimore City public pools Tuesday and Wednesday.
A high temperature of 100 degrees is expected this afternoon and a high of about 98 degrees is predicted for Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. But some relief is expected as thunderstorms are in the forecast for Wednesday afternoon and Thursday, which will drop the predicted high to 91 degrees.
Because the Code Red Aquatic Plan is in effect, pools will have open sessions for two hours with 30 minute intermissions, according to a news release from Baltimore City Recreation and Parks.
- Noon-2 p.m.
- 2:30-4:30 p.m.
- 5-6 p.m. at walk-to pools
- 5-8 p.m. at park pools
Swimmers will have to exit the pool at the end of each session and must pay again to re-enter the pool. The cost is a $1.50 per session at park pools and $1 per session at walk-to pools.
In North Baltimore, the Roosevelt Park Pool at 500 Poole St. is a park pool and Walter P. Cater, 820 E. 43rd St., is a walk-to pool that residents can use.
