Francis Pool (2435 N St. NW) will fill with furry companions during the D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation’s annual Doggie Day Swim event on Sept. 12 at noon.
Area dogs normally barred from entering the pool will finally have their day to splash, swim and play in the water during the event.
Department of Health employees will be in attendance to monitor the health and safety of the pets and their owners, make sure owners have a dog license and provide outreach and education on animal related issues.
Admission is free, but all dogs must have a valid D.C. dog license to enter the pool. Owners may obtain dog licenses prior to Doggie Day Swim at the District’s dog licensing webpage.
