Every year toward the end of the swimming season, the Wilson Park Pool opens its gates for dogs and their people to enjoy some fun in the sun. There is open swim for dogs and owners and you cannot swim unless you have a dog. Proceeds collected during the event will go to The Greater Dayton Humane Society, Luv4K9s, SICSA, Ohio Pug Rescue, Robyn's Nest, Team Greyhound, and Sheltered paws. There will be contests and a Mutt Strut of adoptable dogs.
There is a $5 admission per family and you will be required to sign a waiver at the entrance stating that your dog is up-to-date on shots and vaccinations.
Leashes during the event are not required, but getting your dog from the car/parking lot and to the entrance of the pool will require a leash.
