Things to know as hot summer temperatures hit Lethbridge

As we head deeper into the hot months of July and August, the City of Lethbridge is sharing a reminder of City resources available to help residents stay cool and safe.

City resources and information:

  • Public water stations are available in Nicholas Sheran Park, Legacy Park, Henderson Lake Park and in Galt Gardens downtown. The stations hook up to hydrants, providing a continuous water source
  • Local pools are open, including Henderson Outdoor Pool
  • Starting today, due to the extended heat anticipated, spray parks at Legacy Regional Park and Rotary Centennial Fountain at Galt Gardens will be open for expanded hours of 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Learn more here about our water conservation efforts at spray parks
  • Be cautious if smoking in the river valley and dispose of butts properly or avoid smoking in the area altogether
  • Monitor for information on local fire bans
  • City of Lethbridge facilities are open to the public to seek reprieve from the sun

Things to be mindful of:

  • While current reservoir levels are almost at normal levels, voluntary water conservation efforts are still encouraged. Learn more about water conservation here
  • Be mindful of the use of electric appliances and keep air-conditioning units at a moderate temperature to help prevent overloading the power grid

Other local resources:

The vulnerable members of our community are likely most at-risk during extreme temperatures without access to shelter. The following is a list of local service organizations that are available to help during the hot weather:

  • Lethbridge Stabilization Centre and Shelter
  • Wood’s Homes Youth Connections
  • YWCA Harbour House
  • Sik-Ooh-Kotoki Friendship Society
  • Streets Alive Mission
  • Lethbridge Public Library Main Branch
  • Lethbridge Soup Kitchen
  • SAGE Clan

Provincial resources:

In tandem with the public water stations, the Interfaith Food Bank and Lethbridge Food Bank have joined forces with nine other local groups, including the City of Lethbridge, to ensure water is available to those in need. The City of Lethbridge has pledged up to $5,000 to support this initiative.
