San Francisco opens public pools on Wednesday and offers free access to beat summer heat

San Francisco, California – San Francisco announced that this Wednesday all nine of its public pools would be available free of charge in response to a strong heat wave. This unusual move by the city seeks to provide residents—especially seniors and families with young children—a break from the extreme heat. In times of severe heat, San Francisco Recreation and Parks General Manager Phil Ginsburg highlighted the value of community resources.

“It’s important that residents, especially seniors and families with young children, know that there are resources to help them keep cool during excessive heat,” said Rec and Park General Manager Phil Ginsburg, as reported by KRON4. “Our pools will be free for anyone looking to chill out on Wednesday.”

Particularly in highly crowded areas like the Mission, Tenderloin, and Chinatown, the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management (DEM) is closely observing the situation. Because of their extensive infrastructure and lack of green space, these areas—known as urban heat islands—usually see higher temperatures.

The DEM has provided advice on how to get ready for the heat, highlighting lots of liquids, frequent relaxation in shaded or air-conditioned surroundings, and consistent contact with vulnerable family members and neighbors. This project shows a great effort by local authorities to guarantee public safety and comfort during demanding climatic circumstances as the city gets ready for additional hot weather.
