Encore: Another dog swim at Riverside Park

Thanks to an extended pool season, dogs will once again have a chance to take a swim at Baltimore’s Riverside Park.

The pool will be open to dogs and their owners from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Labor Day, Monday September 6th.
Riverside Park has for the past three years allowed dogs to jump in the pool after the swim season ends. This summer, the end was supposed to come three weeks ago — and a doggie swim was held — but last minute donations from T. Rowe Price and an anonymous private individual allowed the city to keep the pools open longer. T. Rowe Price put up $117,000, and an unnamed individual donated $300,000.
The entry fee for Monday’s doggie swim is $5 a dog, and owners are welcome to swim with their dogs.

What a great idea for Baltimore! I’d love to do that. Now, if only I could get my Golden Retriever to swim?!?

That’s fantastic! Swimming really is the best relief from stifling heat – and great exercise for dogs with mobility problems – but city dogs often have no access to a place where they can take a dip. Good for those anonymous donors – and the city fathers of Baltimore – for making this happen.
