As the heat index reached 113 in some places Sunday, people turned to Shelby Farms Park to cool off.
Mid-Southerners got on kayaks to catch the breeze off the water.
Kids beat the heat at the park’s splash pad.
The Shelby Farms splash pad is open from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. daily. Admission is $4.50 for members and $5 for non-members. Kids 3 years old and younger are free.
