The town of Osoyoos has also noted that the splash park on 89th Street and Kingfisher as well as local beaches can also provide ways to cool off during the heat wave.
Extreme heat can cause illness to people of all ages, and before going outside people should have a heat plan with ways to cool down and stay hydrated.
