For one day, dogs run the show at City Park Pool. On the last day that City Park Pool is open, the City of Fort Collins opens up its doors for dogs to swim. Lovingly coined the “Pooch Plunge”, this nationally recognized swim day has been a favorite in the Fort Collins community for 15 years.
Inside, dogs swim in a pool full of hundreds of tennis balls donated by Lewis Tennis School. Pet store owners and animal experts host space in the lawn and share their expertise and wares with patrons. And, everyone enjoys the splashing and fun of playing outside on the last day of summer.
