The City of Clarksville’s Pooch Pool Party was a wonderful event for pets and their owners

 

Clarksville Parks and RecreationClarksville, TN – The City of Clarksville held their first Pooch Pool Party this weekend at the Swan Lake Swimming Pool. Around 60 pets participated in this ground breaking event for the City of Clarksville.

Special ramps were attached to the hand rails to allow easy entry and exit from the main pool.

In addition to the swimming, there were several games held including a big splash contest. Liz McGraw’s Malti-poo (Maltese and Poodle mix) McKenzie won the contest for animals for 30 pounds and under. Door prizes from the various sponsors were also given away.
