INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- The extreme heat advisory has officials in Indianapolis and Marion County making sure residents know how and where to beat the heat this weekend.
Indy Parks is offering free pool access to all of its pools on Saturday. You can also get into the weight rooms and to the gyms free of charge, plus they are waiving some of the entry fees to Eagle Creek and Garfield Park.
Family Centers will be available as cooling stations during park hours. Healthcare providers say hydrate early and often.
