Melissa Bailey File Photo With temperatures set to rise to the high 70s, the city is reopening its splash pads this weekend for the summer.

Acting city parks chief Rebecca Bombero announced that news in a press release Thursday.

Splash pads—enclosed areas where kids can get water poured on their heads from colorful tall spouts—will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, beginning Saturday, Bombero said.

Splash pads can be found at: South Genesee Park, View Street Park, Edgewood Park, Kensington Street, Ann Street, Trowbridge Square Park, Galvin Park, Lighthouse Point Park, Scantlebury Park and Lincoln/Basset School.

City schools are also offering open swim sessions during June in two spots: At the John Martinez School, on Wednesdays from 5 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. And at James Hillhouse High School on Thursdays from 5 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Spots are still open at 26 summer camps, “including new, half-day programs immediately following summer school,” Bombero said. For more information, visit the parks department website.
