RECREATION | Swimming Spots 

It's July. Go swimming. 'Nuff said. Oh, you don't have a pool? Me neither. Lucky for us, there are dozens of public places to cool off, many of which are listed at Just search "aquatics" and you'll get the list of recreation centers and schools with pools, beaches that offer open swimming hours under the careful supervision of lifeguards, as well as the "Cool Sweep" locations and times, which are operations that include opened fire hydrants, spray parks, and cooling locations with A/C, triggered when the temperatures reach 85 degrees or higher. Admission is free to all locations.

Monroe County public beaches include Durand Eastman Beach (Lakeshore Drive and Kings Highway North), and Ontario Beach Park (4800 Lake Ave.). Lifeguards are on duty daily 11a.m.-7 p.m. during the summer at both locations. For daily beach conditions, call the Monroe County Beach Hotline at 753-5887, which is updated each morning. If you're looking to relax with a good read, Durand tends to be more peaceful, and for those with kiddos, Ontario Beach Park has a carousel and an Abbott's. Just sayin'.
