Find Relief from the Heat in Public Facilities
Posted: July 05, 2019
The City of Belleville encourages those needing relief from the heat to access public facilities within the City as cooling centres. The Belleville Public Library and the Quinte Sports & Wellness Centre are two of these options. During the extremely high temperatures being forecast, please stay in contact with friends and family, in particular seniors living on their own, to ensure they are not in need of assistance.
The Belleville Public Library on Pinnacle Street in the downtown core is open:
Monday-Thursday 9:30AM – 8:00PM
Friday 9:30AM – 5:00PM
Saturday 9:30AM – 5:30PM
Sunday 1:00PM – 5:00PM
The library also has two water bottle-fill stations, one on the first floor and one on the third floor.
The Quinte Sports & Wellness Centre on Cannifton Road is open:
Some other options to ease the heat are the Splash Pads which are free of charge and located at Riverside, Parkdale and Kinsmen Parks. The outdoor Kinsmen Community Pool on Dundas Street East has an admission fee of $3.00 per person or purchase your multipacks - 10 for $25.00 (two and under free). The hours of operation for the Splash Pads and Pool are available at: http://belleville.ca/recreation/page/pools-and-splash-pads.
Please remember to avoid extended periods of time in direct sunlight, drink plenty of water and check in on friends and neighbours to make sure all is well.
