Dog Days of Summer

A doggone good time! Dogs will have their day of fun on August 21, 2017 during the annual Dog Days of Summer! Wichita Park and Recreation Department, in partnership with the Kansas Humane Society, invites pooches to wade, paddle or swim in the College Hill Pool, which has a shallow zero depth entry.

Chemicals will be safe for dogs - but not for humans - so people will only be able to get in the water up to their knees. Children are not allowed in the pool while the dogs are swimming. All dogs must be leashed when not in the pool or participating in the long jump contest, Frisbee catch or largest/smallest dog contest.

A large portion of the proceeds will benefit the Kansas Humane Society. Suggested donation of $10 per dog (limit of two dogs per owner).
