Pooch Pool Party
Saturday, September 8
Dogs rule the pool at the Pooch Pool Party!
Dog owners can treat their furry friends to a swim in Stewart Heights Pool from 10 am to 1:30 pm on Saturday, September 8.
Four-legged friends will have the opportunity to paddle around with other dogs, lunge through the Lazy River and splash in the sprayground. In addition to swimming there will be contests for dogs and an agility course.
“The pool party provides dog owners and their pets a unique experience after the pool closes for the season. It’s great to be able to put this park asset to a different use before it’s drained and cleaned for the winter,” remarked Jim Biles, Senior Recreation Aquatics Supervisor.

- Session 2: 12-1:30 pm
$10 first dog, $5 the second, humans are free
