During the recent sweltering days that have brought temperatures across most of the country above 90 degrees — and in many locations, above 100 — refuge is found in ice cold lemonade, air conditioned rooms and for some with a swimming pool nearby, a refreshing dip in the water.

The Olympic-size pool of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Community Park on Long Island is a popular place this summer.

On a 103-degree day last month, 9-year-old Aaron Bater dove into the Community Park’s pool, above, and other members of his family joined him in the shallow end.
