ARMONK, N.Y. - Warm temperatures made Armonk's pool at the Anita Louise Ehrman Recreation Center a hot spot in town Tuesday as residents flocked to cool off. Mary Rippy and her young daughters Hannah and Maeve sat in the water as they do daily in the summer.
"The girls love the water," Mary Rippy said. "I bring them here just about every day. They swim and sometimes meet with friends."
The high temperatures made it a busy day, said Assistant Pool Director Marta Parker.
"We've had a steady number of people," Parker said. "It's a fun atmosphere to have. This is a beautiful pool. I think it's the best in the county."
Parker said that recent weather has made the Armonk pool a popular location and they've often come close to reaching full capacity.
The Ehrman pool recently waived its $2,000 family membership bond and increased access to out-of-town residents as well. Parker said the increased access has been a positive step for the pool.
"We've had a good response from both the locals and from people out of town," she said.
Brittney Batalla, who has been a lifeguard at the pool for five years, is teaching swimming lessons before she returns to Indiana University. She said the pool has been busy and has seen increased traffic since the bonds were waived.
"Three p.m. is one of our busiest times, especially for swimming lessons," she said.
Tuesday's temperatures reached a high of 93 degrees in Armonk and it remained hot and humid for much of the day, according to the National Weather Service . The forecast calls for temperatures to dip into the 80s -- 88 degrees on Wednesday and low 80s for the rest of the week -- with mostly sunny skies.
