Pools and fountains to stay open late

With a heat wave coming, the city is keeping its swimming and paddling pools and various water jet features open later than usual. Full list here. Some general heat advice and a list of places with air conditioning; some festivities have been cancelled as we wait for what’s predicted to be the hottest Canada Day on record.

Roberto Rocha has made Radio-Canada a map of the hottest and coolest parts of the city. Not surprisingly, it’s coolest near water and under trees.

Also, Radio-Canada’s list of what’s open and closed. As Michael Black points out below, some of the lists of cool places intersect poorly with the holiday weekend. The Grande bibliothèque and the city library network are definitely closed Sunday, for example, and the Grande b. is always closed on Mondays.
