Beat the scorching heat and dive into the cool waters of your local swimming pool! Summer temperatures in the San Bernardino Valley linger in the high 90s and can often exceed 100 degrees. The weather could have you feeling parched and defeated, but with a number of pools available locally, and the Omnitrans Summer Youth Fare, cooling down is a breeze!
Last week, Buster couldn’t wait to escape the 109 heat while out and about. He packed his towel and swim trunks in his Omnitrans 40th Anniversary drawstring backpack, hopped on Route 19, paid his discounted $1 fare, and headed for the 7th Street Pool in Yucaipa. Happy as a clam to be inside the air-conditioned bus, he put his headphones on and listened to his Summer playlist on Spotify while enjoying the ride.
At Yucaipa Blvd. and 7th St., Buster got off the bus and walked down the street to the Yucaipa City Swimming Pool. He paid a small fee for recreational swim, and summer was now fully in session! Buster was excited to make a splash and try out the new rockwall and waterslide at the pool while making new friends and taking poolside photos for his Instagram story! It was all fun in the sun indeed.
Buster also recommends the Jerry Lewis Family Swim Center in San Bernardino, serviced by Route 1! Other community swimming pools can be found here, courtesy of IEShineOn.com.
