With triple-digit temperatures are expected to continue through the weekend, and an excessive heat watch for Wednesday through Friday, it's worth noting the city of Redlands recently touted its air-conditioned Community Center and Senior Centers as "the coolest places in town."
The Joslyn Senior Center is located at 21 Grant St. in Redlands. The Redlands Community Center and Senior Center are located at 111 W. Lugonia Ave.
"These cool centers offer pleasurable, informative, and enlightening programs in a relaxed and secure environment," Redlands spokesman Carl Baker said in a statement. "People in the community are encouraged to enjoy the day away from their high temperature homes and come down to either Senior Center Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or the Community Center Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. to beat the heat."
Activities at include: puzzles, cards and games, craft class, exercise class, and more, Baker said. All activities are free. The centers also offer movies on Tuesday and Friday, with popcorn and punch.
City officials exhorted residents looking for respite from the heat:
"Join us for all the fun! Spend the day in air conditioning!"
