Aurora It Was Hot Hot Day Today – Cool Places to Visit

It was definitely hot day today, and not mentioning it was also a humid today (Saturday July 18, 2015). The heat warning for Southern Ontario was issued through the Environment Canada. Tomorrow will be the same. According to Environment Canada notice, “A Heat Warning is issued when the humidex value is expected to reach 40°C or more or when the temperature is expected to reach levels ranging from 29°C to 40°C or greater depending on your location.

It is also very important to stay away from polluted urban areas during the hot and humid days; especially downtowns where traffic is not avoidable because of high population density and people still drive. The heat and pollution do not mix together and can cause potential breathing issues. An health information you should know.

So what to do in our Town of Aurora during the hot and humid days? Guess what, you can hang out with other parents at the splash pad. You can cool off in the public swimming pools and if you have children then there are two splash pads in our Town, Ada Johnson Park (splash pad on the East end of Town, near Bayview Avenue) and Town Park (splash pad in the heritage park in the down town core of Town of Aurora). Both places have shaded areas, playgrounds, change room facilities and dedicated parking. But I would not recommend visiting during the peak sun hour, that is around lunch. Kids like to play in the playgrounds and will escape away from the shade. So have safe fun where ever you go in Aurora. That’s what we did on a hot day today and perhaps will do the same tomorrow!
