Doggie Dip Returns to Cool Waters with New Earlier Time on Labor Day

doggiedipOn Labor Day, Cool Waters will close for the “human swimming season,” but before it is drained for the year, it will reopen at 4:30 p.m. for the 12th Annual Doggie Dip. Cool Waters is located at 2028 S. 124 St. in West Allis. The event is presented by Milwaukee County Parks in partnership with Residents for Off-Leash Milwaukee Parks.

Whether fearless about diving for tennis balls or wearing a personal floatation device, dogs of all abilities, breeds, and sizes are welcome to come for a swim in the pool. All dogs must be licensed and current with their vaccinations.

The Doggie Dip at Cool Waters runs from 4:30–6pm, Monday, Sept. 5. Admission is $5 per dog.

At the event, patrons may purchase 2016 Dog Exercise Area permits at a special price. The permit is good through Dec. 31. Regardless of the patron’s residency, the price will be $10 for one dog.

License and rabies-tag numbers are required for each of the dogs to be permitted.

For area residents, Labor Day may mark the end of the summer swimming season, but for dogs, things are just getting started.
