Bring your dog for some fun in the water.  We are opening up the Hays Aquatic Park’s zero depth entry pool for all dogs to come and play before we drain the pool.  The pool chemicals are adjusted for a different breed of swimmer.  For human safety, only guests 16 years of age and older can get in the water and only up to their thighs.  We will not allow children in the water.  All dogs must have current vaccinations including rabies.  Owners must be in control of their pet(s) at all times, two pets per guest max.  Please note that this is open to all dogs so come with the equipment needed to keep your dog under control. You will be responsible for cleaning up after your dog.  All participants will be entered into our Doggy Prize Drawing at 12:00pm.
Held on:    Saturday, August 19
Time:     11:00am – 1:00pm
