Bark n’ Splash Bash to Return in September

Splash around with your furry friend at the Longview Recreation Center in Spring Hill on Sept. 9.

The Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department (WCPR) will once again partner with the Williamson County Animal Center (WCAC) to host the Fifth Annual Bark ‘n Splash Bash on Saturday, September 9, 2023 at the Longview Recreation Center at Spring Hill (2909 Commonwealth Dr.) from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

This “paw-some” event returns for all dogs to have a chance to paddle and play while raising money for the animal center. Evan Hampton, Aquatics Superintendent for WCPR said his staff are excited to host the event.

“We know people love their dogs, and the Bark ‘n Splash Bash gives them a chance to enjoy playing with their dogs in a fun aquatic environment.” During the special event, the pool area will be open only to pre-registered adult handlers (18+) and their dogs. Spectators are welcome to observe from the “Bowwow Boosters” section (free of charge).

Space is limited, and participants must pre-register using activity code 29498. The entry fee is $20 per pet. Proof of rabies vaccination is required for entry (no exceptions). Participants should review all rules and waivers during online registration.
