The dog days of summer deserve a day just for the dogs before the pool season ends.
Reston Association is hosting a dog paddle next weekend. Residents can bring their dog for a dip in the pool at North Hills on Saturday, August 29 and at Dogwood on Sunday, August 30. Both events take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Access to the pool is reserved on a 45-minute visit that begins at the top of each hour. Although people are not allowing in the water with the dogs, four people can accompany each dog to the facility. Dogs must remain under control at all times or will be asked to leave without a refund. Female dogs in heat are not allowed.
Face masks — for humans only — are required at all times. The fee is $10 per dog for RA members and $15 for all others.
Registration is open via RA’s Webtrac system. Pre-registration is required and the event will be cancelled in the event of rain.
Active dog licenses are required before entering the facility. RA reserved the right to density admission to any patron or dog owner.
