As Southern California baked under record breaking heat this past weekend, Lynwood residents were able to find relief at a number of Cooling Centers around the city.
Thanks to the city of Lynwood, many of our neighbors were able to visit the Avalos Community Center at Burke-Ham Park, the Lynwood Community Center, and the Lynwood Senior Citizens Center to “cool off”. The city also offered free swimming at the Natatorium, which many families took advantage of over the weekend.
“We received great feedback from our residents that took advantage of this service,” said Mark A. Flores, Lynwood Recreation and Community Services Director. “The summer promises to be a hot one and we will be ready to help more as temperatures spike.”
Hot weather can be a health hazard, especially for our senior citizens and our young people.
“As I traveled around the city this weekend, many people expressed to me their gratitude for providing this service during the very hot weather we had to endure,” said Mayor Jose Solache. “We are focused on helping create a safe and healthy environment for our residents and I congratulate our staff for their great work.”
By the way, as part of the “Beat the Heat” efforts, the city will offer free Family Swim Nights at the Natatorium from 5:00-to-8:00 p.m. on the following dates:
Saturday July 28
Saturday August 11
