PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. - Summer officially made its way to Pleasantville Wednesday as temperatures in the 90s had residents packing the village pool trying to beat the heat.
The amount of people looking to cool off in the pool at Nannahagan Park had residents parking on the grass after regular spaces filled up. Similar weather on Thursday may lead to another overflow of residents at the pool.

Weekday hours for the pool this week are 12:30 to 7 p.m. and the pool will remain open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the weekend.
