Puppy Play Day! Treat your furry friends to a run and a swim at Stewart Heights Pool.

Pooch Pool Party

Dog owners can treat their furry friends to a swim in Stewart Heights Pool from 10 am to 1:30 pm on Saturday, September 12, 2015. 

Four-legged friends will have the opportunity to paddle around with other dogs, lunge through the Lazy River and splash in the sprayground. 

“The pool party provides dog owners and their pets a unique experience after the pool closes for the season. It’s great to be able to put this park asset to a different use before it’s drained and cleaned for the winter,” remarked Jim Biles, Senior Recreation Aquatics Supervisor.

  • Pool Party Session 1: 10-11:30am 
  • Pool Party Session 2: 12-1:30 pm

$10 first dog, $5 the second, humans are free

Tickets are available at the door. (No advance ticket sales). 100-120 dogs will be allowed during each session. 


Dog Gone Run

New this year! Combine a run with your dog in the morning and then go directly over to the pool for a Racer ONLY Pooch Pool Party.

For only $25 (through Sept. 6) you can take a refreshing 2-mile run with your pup and then have your own exclusive pool party before the public Pooch Pool Party starts at 10 am. Pre-registration is required. 

If your dog doesn’t swim or you don’t own a pet come to Stewart Heights and participate in the run only for a discounted price.

People are not allowed in the pool during the party, but will be able to watch from the deck. The Pooch Pool Party takes place after the pool has closed for the season. Pool chemicals are turned off a few days prior to the Pool Party so that irritation is minimized for the dogs. Scoop bags will be provided. Dogs must be on leashes when they are out of the water.
