Doctors say kids are one of the groups most at risk when it comes to heat-related illnesses. That's why some parents say they plan to keep a close eye on their children while doing outside activity. They also plan to make sure their kids stay hydrated and wear light cool clothing.
But some parents and grandparents say they are now disappointed their children will no longer have the option of cooling down at a pool in their own neighborhood.
"They look forward to coming to the pool, swimming and cooling off at the pool because their mom would be at work and their mom thinknig that everything will be alright," said concerned resident Sandra Milton.
Like the pool at Independence Heights Park, there are alternative pool locations of those closed pools, all of them within 4 miles of the closed pools.
