SPOKANE, Wash. — The National Weather Service placed an Excessive Heat Watch for many places across the Inland Northwest, including right here in Spokane.

As a result, there are places that you will want to go to beat the heat, as temperatures will be consistent in the 90s, with some days that have the potential to hit triple digits.

“We encourage residents to take advantage of the public spaces and facilities throughout the City to help them stay cool as we experience extremely hot weather,” Spokane Mayor Nadine
Woodward said. “And we ask people to check on their more vulnerable neighbors who might not have air conditioning.”

Here are some places where you can cool off this week.

At Spokane Public Library locations, there are air-conditioned spaces open seven days a week where you can cool off at. You can go to the following libraries to cool off:

  • Central – 906 W. Main St.
  • Shadle Park – 2111 W. Wellesley Ave.
  • Liberty Park – 402 S. Pittsburg St.
  • Hillyard – 4110 N. Cook St.

All public libraries are open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Another place where you can cool off is at splash pads and pools across the city. They are open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. across 19 parks. There are also six pools that you can go to on Monday through Saturday at different hours.
