WORCESTER – City officials are urging the public to take steps to ensure a safe Fourth of July Weekend for all.

City leaders remind the public that the use of fireworks, bon fires, and fire pits are illegal in Worcester. Police take notice.

The public is encouraged to attend Worcester’s Independence Day Celebration on Thursday, June 30, presented by Fallon Health. There will be a food court, fun for kids, entertainment by WXLO, a performance by Ricky Duran, and a fireworks display with synchronized music.

In the case of excessive heat, please take precautions: stay hydrated; looks for signs of heat-related illness; take breaks from strenuous activity and direct exposure to the sun. Check on elderly neighbors. Do not leave children or pets unattended in a parked car.

The City’s spray parks, beaches, and pool will open on July 1. Officials remind the public that swimming at any facility not staffed by lifeguards is not recommended.

The spray parks at Cristoforo Colombo/East Spray Park, 180 Shrewsbury St., and Greenwood Spray Park, 14 Forsberg St., will be open until 7 p.m., seven days a week, until Labor Day.

The Crompton Park Pool and all city beaches – Bell Pond, Indian Lake, John J. Binienda Memorial Beach at Coes Pond, and Shore Park – will be open from July 1 through Aug. 22.
