Take your dog swimming at Waterford Oaks Wave Pool

As the summer winds down, dogs get a chance to enjoy Waterford Oaks Wave Pool before it's emptied for the winter.

This year's dog swim will be held Sept. 9 from noon to 2:30 p.m. The event is broken up into timeslots based on dogs' weights, with a limit of 75 dogs per session:

  • 12-12:50 p.m. - dogs 70 pounds and larger
  • 1-1:50 p.m. - dogs 31-69 pounds
  • 2-2:50 p.m. - dogs 30 pounds and smaller

Attendees are required to show a dog license with proof of current vaccinations at the event.
