Dogs Will Be Allowed To Swim In These Toronto Public Pools This Long Weekend

Ten pools in the city are inviting dogs for a swim this weekend!

It is that time of the summer when you can bring your dog to the swimming pool before they drain them out. Most pools will be closed for the season on Sunday, Sept. 1, and a few on Monday, Sept. 2nd. Toronto Parks and Recreation just released which pools allow for dog swimming in Toronto.

Be sure to check the time as well as the date for the pools listed. All dogs must be with a guardian 18 years of age or older and there is a limit of 2 dogs per person, according to the Facebook event. All people on deck must be at least 12 years old. Dog owners will also be asked to provide proof of the dog's vaccination before swimming.
