Dog Days

Dog Days

Scott Carpenter Pool turns into an aquatic dog park for two weeks from September 19 - September 30.

The pool closes for human use and we open up the water for dogs to enjoy.

The Dog Dayz event has been running strong for nearly a decade and saw close to 2,000 dogs come through the gate in past years. It is a great way to spend a warm afternoon with your best friend -- your dog (or dogs) will be grateful for the chance to cool off and play with others.

Be a part of the best dog friendly event around!
