Cooling Centers in West Sacramento

During the current heat wave, two West Sacramento centers will provide relief:

The Arthur F. Turner Community Library, 1212 Merkley Ave., will be open both Saturday, June 29 (10 am to 5:30 pm) and Sunday, June 30 (1-5 pm) as a place to escape the hot temperatures this weekend.  Contact the Turner Library at (916) 375-6465.

The West Sacramento Recreation Center is also a cooling center and will be open Saturday and Sunday from 8 am to 8 pm. The Rec Center is also open until 9:30 pm on weekdays (except July 4th when it closes at 5:30 pm).  Not only is the Rec Center air conditioned inside, the Rec Center pools can also help keep you cool – Rec Swim is from 1 – 5 pm both Saturday and Sunday.  A day pass is $6 for adults, and $4.50 for seniors and students.  Contact the Rec Center at (916) 617-4770.

The cooling centers are air-conditioned. Comfortable seating is available. Stay hydrated!  Water is available at both cooling center sites, but bringing a re-useable water bottle is recommended.  Dress in layers so you can shed layers when in the shade and add to cover skin when in direct sunlight.

If you go boating on the river, please remember to provide life preservers for the safety of your passengers. If you’re playing in the river, remember to equip your young people with life preservers. If you need to borrow a life preserver, please check the supply at Fire Station 45, 2040 Lake Washington Blvd., Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Be safe!
