CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — Camden city officials were offering a number of options for people to beat the heat today.
At Farnham Park, adults lounged beneath shady trees while their kids danced and darted through a nearby spray pool.
Quayla Turner says she got her four children out of the house early.
“I came about 9:30 and I was here when the guy turned the water on — I was begging him! He told me he turned it on early today because it was so hot.”
More than half a dozen spray pools are open until 8pm.
Camden officials were also reminding folks that they can duck into air-conditioned community centers when the temperatures soar. They’re open Monday through Friday from 8:30am until 4:30pm.
Free window fans and bottled water (above) are also available at each location.
