COR­NER BROOK, N.L. — Get­ting ready for back to school is one sign that sum­mer is com­ing to an end. An­other is the clo­sure of the pool at Mar­garet Bowa­ter Park in Cor­ner Brook.

The weather could be bet­ter, but to­day is the last day for swim­ming at the park.

Any­one look­ing to beat what’s left of the sum­mer heat in the splash pad had un­til Sept. 2, Labour Day, to do so. The splash pad, the park’s newest fea­ture, closed for the sea­son on that day.

The weather Satur­day may not be much bet­ter than as En­vi­ron­ment Canada is call­ing for show­ers late in the morn­ing and into the af­ter­noon. The tem­per­a­ture will still be quite warm with a high of 22 de­grees Cel­sius and a hu­midex of 27 de­grees Cel­sius.

Sun­day was ex­pected to see a mix of sun and cloud with a high of 17 C and Labour Day ex­pected the same con­di­tions with a lit­tle higher tem­per­a­ture of 22 C.

Af­ter the nice day Sept. 2, the show­ers were ex­pected to re­turn Sept. 3 with a high of 19 C. That’s prob­a­bly fitting weather as it’s the day teach­ers around the west coast will re­turn to work.

Sept. 4, the first day of school for most stu­dents in the west­ern re­gion, is shap­ing up to be a nice day with a mix of sun and cloud in the forecast and a high of 19 C.

Eleven schools in the west­ern re­gion won’t wel­come stu­dents back un­til Sept. 6. Those schools are part of phase 2 of the prov­ince’s Education Ac­tion Plan and the ex­tra two-day break is for pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment for ed­u­ca­tors.


Ada­lyn Park, 6, of Ir­ish­town spent some time play­ing in the splash pad at Mar­garet Bowa­ter Park in Cor­ner Brook on Thurs­day. The splash pad closes for the sea­son on Sept. 2.
