Armonk Beats The Heat At Town Pool

ARMONK, N.Y. – As residents headed to the North Castle Town Pool on Wednesday to cool off from the high temperatures, Pool Director Jim D’Ottavio said swimmers need to take precautions while enjoying the water.

“People need to make sure that they drink a lot of fluids, even when they’re in the water,” D’Ottavio said. “Some people think that just because they’re in the water they’re fine but you still sweat and lose a lot of fluids while swimming.”

The Westchester County Health Department issued a heat advisory for Wednesday warning all residents to avoid strenuous activity, drink non-caffeinated and non-alcoholic beverages and to stay indoors in air-conditioning when possible. The department predicted the high temperature of the day to reach the upper 90s.  D’Ottavio said because many people were expected to go to the pool during the hot weather, it would open at 1 p.m. on Thursday and Friday instead of the normal time of 3 p.m.

Armonk resident Barry Geller was enjoying some shade at the pool Wednesday with his wife and two children. Geller said, although he enjoys being at the pool, the extreme heat is not for him.

“I don’t particularly like when it’s really hot or really cold,” Geller said.  “I’m more of a fan of the spring and fall seasons.”

D’Ottavio said that despite the high number of people expected to visit the pool this week, he believes there are people who will elect to stay inside instead.

“There is always the possibility that some people might not want to come out to the pool and would rather stay inside in air conditioning or maybe they can’t because of some health reasons,” D’Ottavio said. “But we encourage everyone to come out and have a good time.”
