In preparation for a second—albeit smaller—heat wave, the city has set up misting stations and cooling centres to help people beat the heat.
Highs tomorrow are anticipated to exceed 30 degrees Celsius, with slightly cooler temperatures forecast for this weekend.
Misting stations are open at the following locations:
• Bayview Street at No. 1 Road
• Moncton Avenue at Third Avenue
• Garry Point Park
• Thompson Basketball Court
• Back side of Steveston-London School Park
• South Arm Basketball Courts
Cooling centres are available at the Minoru Centre for Active Living, Cambie and South Arm community centres during regular hours.
