Williamson County dog owners can find out if their dogs can paddle at the second annual Bark ‘n Splash Bash on Saturday, Sept. 7.
Due to popular demand, this year’s event will be held at two WCPR locations: the Longview Recreation Center at Spring Hill (2909 Commonwealth Dr.) from 9 a.m.-noon and the Williamson County Recreation Center at Nolensville (7250 Nolensville Rd.) from 1-4 p.m.
The Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department and Williamson County Animal Center partner in this joint event to raise money for the animal center’s special medical fund.
Evan Hampton, aquatics coordinator for WCPR, said his staff is excited to host the event.
“We know people love their dogs, and the Bark ‘n Splash Bash gives them a chance to enjoy playing with their dogs in some of our outdoor pools,” he said.
During the special event, the pool area will open to pre-registered adult handlers (18 and older) and their dogs only. Spectators are welcome to observe from the Bowwow Boosters section for free.
Registration will open on Aug. 1. Participants must pre-register at www.wcparksandrec.com.
To register for the Longview/Spring Hill location, use registration code #14961. Use registration code #14962 for the Nolensville location. The entry fee is $20 per pet, and space is limited.
Proof of rabies is required for entry (no exceptions), and participants should review all rules and waivers during online registration.
The event is sponsored by Scott Poe Properties.
A rainout date is set for Sunday, Sept. 8.
