Select Boston Pools and Beaches Will Stay Open Late This Weekend

The longer hours are intended to give people relief from the heatwave.

Governor Charlie Baker announced Wednesday that many state-run pools, beaches, and spray decks will operate on extended hours this weekend to provide refuge from the waging heat wave.

Fifty-eight bodies of water around the city will stay open, with lifeguards, until 7:30 p.m. each night from Friday, July 31 through Sunday, August 2. The initiative is intended to give people a way to safely beat the heat, and avoid conditions like heat stroke and heat exhaustion.
