FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - While the extreme heat has kept a lot of people inside recently, many other Summit City residents are attempting to beat the heat by taking advantage of the city's splash pads and discounted pool fees.
Parks and Recreation officials say the city's cooling centers are still bringing in 15 to 20 people a day. They say although those numbers are decreasing as people have their power restored, the Community Center and Lifetime Sports Academy will still provide a place to cool down while the high temperatures continue.
Shoaff, Waynedale, and McCormick splash pads are not open this weekend, but on Friday Buckner Park was filled with adults and children enjoying the water.
Pool fees are also being reduced on Friday and Saturday at Northside, Memorial, and McMillen pools. Children 12 and under are free, and it's just $1 for people 13 and older.
