Wrap up the end to a wonderful summer season by bringing out your best fur-friend to take in a lap or two at the 8th Annual Doggie Swim. The event is being sponsored by the Bristol Tennessee Parks and Recreation Department and hosted at the Haynesfield Pool.
This year’s Doggie Swim is set for Tuesday, September 5 through Friday, September 8 from 5PM until 7:30PM. The final swim of the summer is set for Saturday, September 9 from 12 Noon until 4PM at which time the pool will close for the season. Admission is $3 per dog, with a limit of two dogs per human-friend. There is no human-friend admission fee. Get Bandit, Boo, or Giselle’s swim suits dusted off and spend an afternoon sunning beside the pool with your best friend.
“There are a few rules. All dogs must be current on their vaccinations and must wear a rabies tag and owner identification tag. Dogs must remain on a leash when not in the pool,” said Mike Musick, Recreation Superintendent. “Training treats are allowed, however food and drinks are prohibited in the pool or pool area,” said Musick.
Haynesfield Pool is located at 327 Sleepy Hollow Road, Bristol, Tennessee.
