Rivers Park Pool recently opened for the season and is the city's only outdoor pool open this year. The other three pools in Chicopee are closed.
Many spent their Sunday swimming, playing in the splash park and barbecuing outdoors. Chicopee residents say being at the pool was a great way to beat this heat.
"I'm here at Rivers park. My friend's daughter turns 10 today. There's a lot of celebration and love. So, we're just having a good time on this really hot day," said Tania Colon of Chicopee.
Others, said they wanted to enjoy the nice weather before the more severe weather hits.
"This morning, I woke up and it was just like blazing. I was sweating so much, I had to go to the pool," said Samantha Rodriguez.
