When the Selkirk Park Pool & Splashpad closes for the summer, it goes to the dogs – literally! The City of Selkirk invites your furry friends to come for a dip to close out the season.

Our 2024 K-9 Swim & Splash will take place on Monday, September 2, 2024. 

Times:  Dogs under 30lbs can swim between 1-3 p.m.  Larger K9’s can swim between 3-7 pm.

Location/Venue: Selkirk Park Pool & Splash Pad (inside Selkirk Park)

Cost: Free Entry – Donations of dog food/treats/new toys graciously accepted, which will be donated to the municipal Animal Retention Center (ARC).

K9 Swim & Splash Rules

While the dogs are taking over the pool for the afternoon and evening, there are rules the dogs, and their owners, will have to follow.

  • Owners must bring proof of current vaccinations to the pool entry gate upon registration (if not pre-registration required). A vaccination certificate from your vet is the only acceptable proof of vaccination. The certificate must show rabies, distemper/parvo (DA2PP) and bordetella vaccination (must be current and not expired). Dog tags alone are not sufficient.
  • Dogs must be accompanied by an adult handler over the age of 18.
  • You are responsible for your dog and its behavior while in the pool, including your dog’s interaction with other dogs.
  • Please attend to your dog at all times. There is no doggy lifeguard so this is especially important while your dog is in the water. Lifeguards will be on duty, for monitoring patrons only.
  • Dog must be on a leash while outside the gated pool area.
  • No human swimming
  • No food or treats inside the pool area.
  • Incontinent dogs are not permitted in the pool area for health reasons.
  • No dogs in heat.
  • Clean up after your dogs.
  • No muddy dogs in the pool. A rinse hose will be provided.
  • Please do not attend if you feel unwell.


While drop-in is welcome, we encourage you to pre-register for this event to save time when you arrive to the pool with your dog.
