Tulsa Parks recently announced the sixth annual K-9 Splash – a pool party for dogs and their owners.

The event is scheduled for Reed Park Pool on Sunday, Aug. 16, 1 pm-2:30 pm, and McClure Park Pool on Sun., Aug. 23rd with two sessions: 1 pm-2:30 pm and 3 pm-4:30 pm.

Admission is $5 per dog (owners are free).  Tickets are limited – and required.

“Each year this event becomes more and more popular and we’ve had to turn people away when we reach capacity,” describes Rhonda Freiner, Aquatics Specialist for Tulsa Parks.  “The dogs and their owners have a really great time.”

Door prizes will also be given away.

Dogs must be current with their shots, and on a leash when entering and exiting the pool area.

Dogs in heat will not be allowed.  As always, lifeguards will be on duty.
