Temperatures soared about 90 degrees in much of New Jersey on Tuesday, causing many across the state to seek out ways to stay cool.
Some were out in Hamilton Park in Union City taking in the view of the Manhattan skyline, while enjoying the light breeze in the shade.
Others were out in Ellsworth Park taking a break from the heat while surrounded by hydrangeas and roses.
But if you’re a kid, there was no better place to be than at Duarte Park and Kiddie Pool. Penelope Sanchez, 6, showed News 12 around the park, including the big slide.
“This is amazing,” she said.
Penelope was recently at the beach with her parents and says that she liked the water park better.
“Yesterday, I got some sand in my swimsuit,” she said.
The children were pretty happy at the water park and didn’t seem to mind the heat.
“I love it. A little place where all of the kids get to enjoy themselves during this hot, hot weather," says mother Jennifer Guzman.
Intense temperatures will remain for Wednesday, for another day of 90+ degrees.
