Spray parks across the city were scheduled to go dry yesterday evening, but a forecasted heat wave led the DC Department of Parks and Recreation to delay the closures for another week. This means that you can take the kids to Friendship (Turtle) Park for a little reprieve from the heat from 10:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. through Sunday, September 7.

Select outdoor pools will also remain open. The closest ones to Tenleytown are Francis pool at 2435 N Street, NW and Upshur pool at 4300 Arkansas Avenue, NW. They will be open Monday through Friday from 3:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

The indoor Wilson Aquatic Center is currently undergoing scheduled maintenance and is expected to resume operation on Sunday, September 21.
