Dog Dayz

Dog Dayz

Join us for Dog Dayz, when Scott Carpenter Pool turns into an aquatic dog park for two weeks from Monday, Sept. 19 through Sunday, Oct. 2.

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

Volunteers Needed!

Come help us celebrate the end of summer!  Do you love dogs and the endless amount of fun watching them splash, swim, jump and dive? Scott Carpenter Park Pool is open for a fun swim for our furry friends and we are looking for adult volunteers who are comfortable around many dogs to mingle and engage with our participants at the event. Many shifts available during the week and weekend.

Sign up to volunteer

Presented by Blue Federal Credit Union, For you. For life.

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!
