Residents have just one more weekend to take a dip at the city's beaches and outdoor pools.
Outdoor pools close for the season on Monday, and life guards will no longer be on duty at city beaches.
Untill then, beaches are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and pools are open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Beach-goers we spoke with say they're sad to see summer coming to an end.
"It's a little bittersweet," said one. "I'm kind of ready for the fall though with all the hot weather but it's sad."
"No more beach," said another. "It's all work and work and very little play. So I love summer in New York. I was thinking about it when I rode the bus in to the beach, so I'll be here today, tomorrow and Monday."
One family in Queens took advantage of the last few days of beach season by capturing some amazing sights.
Michael Clifford spotted dolphins at Rockaway Beach on Thursday.
The dad says he jumped in a kayak with his kids and grabbed a video camera to capture the moment.
"We went out about 100 yards out," he said. "It was maybe 20, 30 dolphins. It was a mother with the babies, all swimming right down the beach. The kids were very excited. I was paddling as fast as I can. They just kept moving down the beach. They're very curious, as were we following them as long as I could until I ran out of steam paddling."
