With hot temperatures in store for San Francisco residents Friday, the Recreation and Park Department announced free pool access.

“With temperatures expected to reach 90 degrees in some neighborhoods, the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department is waiving admission fees to seven pools throughout the city today,” the department announced.

While regular programming of mid-day lap swims and lessons will go on as planned, “pools will keep at least one lane open to those seeking relief from the heat and offer free recreational and family swim at designated hours.”
