|Swim fest for canines set this weekend
The swimming lagoon at Spring Lake Regional Park will turn into a leash-free dog park this weekend (May 11-13). All well-behaved dogs are invited to romp in the lagoon from 2-7 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The lagoon is at 391 Violetti Road in Santa Rosa.
The Sonoma County Regional Parks Foundation and the Sonoma County Water Agency sponsored the first “Water Bark” dog swim last summer, and the event was well attended. With weekend temperatures expected to be in the 80s and 90s, conditions are ideal for another Water Bark.
So grab a tennis ball and let your dog cool off at Spring Lake Regional Park this weekend. Remember, because of health regulations, swimming at this event is for canines only.
The Parks Foundation is requesting donations of $3 per dog for Regional Park members and $5 per dog for non-members. Proceeds will benefit the park. Parking near the lagoon is free for members and $7 for non-members.
