Dogs rule at the pool this weekend!


The fun is over at most outdoor pools for people this summer, but not for dogs! Letting my dogs swim in a pool is one of the only reasons I look forward to the end of summer (pro football is another).

This Saturday, Sept. 12, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority opens all five of their water parks for Dog Day swims!

The five water parks are:

Great Waves Waterpark, Alexandria

Ocean Dunes Waterpark, Arlington

Atlantis Waterpark, Centreville

Pirates Cove at Pohick Bay, Lorton

Volcano Island Waterpark, Sterling

The cost is $5 per dog, and there must be an adult human handler for each dog.

Another dog swim on Saturday, out in Leesburg, is Ida Lee Park’s Aquatic Center. It is also from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, with a two dog limit and age restriction on human handlers of 16 years or older.
