Thornton’s City Pool 'goes to the dogs' on Saturday, August 18

THORNTON, CO…While the dog days of summer are coming to a close, Saturday, August 18 will be a day just for dogs at Thornton’s City Pool, 2141 E. 95th Ave. On that day, the pool, already officially closed to humans, opens its doors to dogs and their owners.

The fee is $5 per dog and one adult human companion, with $1 for each additional human. (Children ages 12 and under are free.)  Proof of current pet vaccinations is required upon entry. No human swimming or unsupervised children allowed.
