September feels more like July in Montreal this weekend. Here's where you can cool off in city parks this weekend — or even pay a visit to a water park.

Unseasonably warm weather in Montreal has city residents turning to the water for some relief.

The high forecast for Saturday is 29 C, while Sunday is predicted to peak at 30 C, making late September feel like mid-July.

This weekend, some of the water park at Les Sommets De Saint-Sauver were reopened, while in the city of Montreal, some wading pools were reopened.

"Since the opening of the park in 1985, it's the first time we've re-opened the park this late in September," Louis Philippe Hébert, the president of Les Sommets de Saint-Sauveur, told Radio-Canada.

The park's pool, spa and Manic and Torrent waterslides are open Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Hébert said there was a lot of demand to reopen the water park, so they made calls to their summer lifeguards to see if they would come back for the weekend.

Re-opened wading pools and splash pads:

In Nicolas-Tillemont and Parc Jarry, the wading pools are back open this weekend from 10:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. 

In Anjou, Parc Peterborough water features are open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. this weekend.

In Lachine, the water features at Parc LaSalle, Parc de la Marina d'escale and Parc Kirkland are open from 9:00 to 9:00 p.m. this weekend.

In the Plateau, the wading pool at Parc Jeanne-Mance is open from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. all weekend.
