The line of swimmers waiting to get into the Terrace Park Family Aquatic Center wrapped all the way around the sidewalk Saturday. Even the youngest swimmers know the importance of keeping cool on a hot day.

“You get to cool off and you get to do new stuff in the pool,” Ainsley said. “Jumping in and getting all cooled off in the pool,” Deklan said. “All the things you can do because there’s lot of varieties,” 12-year-old Carsyn said.
