The wave pools at Boyce Park and South Park will host their fourth-annual “Pooches in the Pool” event from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, a spokesperson said.
During the event, dogs will be permitted to swim in the pools, but they must wear current license and rabies tags to enter the pools, and each dog must be accompanied by at least one guardian. The cost is $15 per dog with up to two guardians, and each additional attendee will be charged $5, the spokesperson said.
Tickets can be purchased in advance online or at the pools on the day of the event.
County pools will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday for normal swimming, and a variety of other events are occurring throughout the parks system on Labor Day. For more information, visit the county parks website.
All other county offices will be closed on Monday in observance of Labor Day, the spokesperson said. Normal business hours will resume on Tuesday.
