Dog Dayz

Dog Dayz 2018: Sept. 10 - 23

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 more than 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!
