EXTENDED: Extreme heat prompts Langley pools to stay open

One of the Township’s outdoor pools will remain open today, because of hot temperatures.

Apparently some students in and around Aldergrove were looking to beat the heat after the first day of school.

Due to the extreme hot weather, the Township of Langley parks staff opted to keep the outdoor pools in Fort Langley and Aldergrove open for at least one extra day.

Well, that plan has been extended, at least for one of the pools.

And as of Wednesday morning, the Township was announcing it would continue to keep the Aldergrove (but not the Fort Langley) pool open again today (Sept. 6), from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Traditionally, these pools close down after Labour Day. But given the record-breaking temperatures, and people’s quests to cool down, a decision was made to keep them open a little longer.
