The National Weather Service says the heat index for tomorrow may be up to 100 degrees. Those kinds of temperatures can really put our older and homeless residents in danger. To assist our vulnerable neighbors  the City of Bangor's Parks & Recreation department will set up a temporary cooling area on the Bangor Waterfront. 

The cooling area will be available to the public on Saturday, July 20, 2019 from 12 noon to 5pm. It will be stationed in a grass area near the flagpole at the corner of the Waterfront bulkhead. Sprinklers will be running during the afternoon.

 

The City's public swimming pools are also open tomorrow from 1pm to 4:30pm. The Beth Pancoe Aquatic Center is located on 13th Street, and the Dakin Pool is located at the end of Pine Street just off Stillwater Avenue.

THe Brick Church in Union Street will also be open with air conditioning and water daily for anyone in need from 10:00 till 5:00
