Oak Creek Patch scouted the closest places that offer water fun - pools, beaches and waterparks.
Since summer wraps up after Labor Day, you may be wishing you still had a few more weekends of lounging by the pool or beach. Don't worry, you can still enjoy a few more weekends of splish splashing water fun in the September sun. Even though Oak Creek only has one beach to offer, there are several beaches, pools and waterparks within 13 miles from Oak Creek.
Residents have extra chances to get relief from the heat.
With the heat wave forecasted to last all week, open swim hours at the Oak Creek High School pool have been extended to 4:30 p.m. through Thursday. Milwaukee County has also extended hours for its pools. Outdoor pools will have an evening session; wading pools and splash pads will be open an additional two hours; and Cool Waters and David F. Schulz water parks will be open until 8 p.m. For more information, visit countyparks.com. The city has more safety information about the heat wave here.
