Picture Rocks is dedicating this Saturday to the dogs.

Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation is opening up Picture Rocks Pool to dogs of all sizes before the pool undergoes re-plastering. 

The event takes place at 5615 N. Sanders Road from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Public pools and pooches don’t usually mix, Grant Bourguet, recreation program manager for NRPR, said, but this is a great opportunity for dog owners and their four-legged friends to escape the heat by enjoying some water fun together.

The event page also says PACC will be attending with dogs available for adoption.

Additional event guidelines include:

  • Owners are responsible for the actions of themselves and their pet and accept the risk of damage and/or injury caused by other dogs utilizing the pool area;
  • Dog waste must be cleaned up immediately by owner;
  • Aggressive dogs are not permitted on the premises and must be removed at the first sign of aggression;
  • No female dogs in season are allowed;
  • All dogs must wear collars with a current Pima County license and must be up-to-date on all vaccinations.
