Warm Up, Cool Down, and Clean Air Locations

Public holidays will impact hours of service at listed locations.

There are places for you to go when it’s too cold, too hot, or if there is unsafe air quality. Before you go, if possible, please call ahead to make sure there is enough space to accommodate. They are good for a quick warm-up or cool-down, but they might not have many extra services.
