Humboldt Park wading pool open again; new hours 10-2PM

Walking home from the Chill on the Hill [on Tuesday] night, we saw that the wading pool in Humboldt Park is indeed open once again, and that the hours have been changed to 10-2PM. Unfortuantely, it’s closed during the peak heat/sun hours of the late afternoon. I hope that the hours are changed again when we approach the hottest months of the summer, assuming the temperature ever gets above 80 deg. F.

(And let’s hope I haven’t condemned us to two months of above-90 weather by saying that!)

  1. FYI, the original hours of the wading pool were from 3-7pm, but compaints to Supervisor Larson have caused to earlier hours.

  2. That’s interesting. I’ll be talking to him on Monday about this and other things (namely transit). We’ll see what he says. I thought the old hours were perfect, especially for those of us who work or have other daytime engagements. Not to mention when it’s hot out, you want the pool open in the warmer hours of the day, which are generally in the afternoon and early evening. I’ll ask him about this all.
