With temperatures reaching near triple-digits, people all over the Capital Region were looking for ways to cool off. One of the quickest was the pool.

NewsChannel 13 stopped at the Lincoln Park Pool in Albany, which was crowded with lots of people trying to stay cool.

We also stopped by the Clifton Park Senior Community Center, which was open as a cooling station during peak hours this weekend.

The town supervisor pointed out that not everyone has air conditioning, and some may lose power, so the cooling centers are for those who may not have any other means to get out of the heat.

Another option is for people to head out to the lake. Lots of families were at Grafton Lakes State Park. You could see people swimming in the water or just taking it easy in the shade.

Don’t forget to take it easy in the heat, and stay hydrated.
