Doggie weekend set at Spring Lake
SPRING LAKE REGIONAL PARK will go to the dogs next weekend.
The swimming lagoon at Spring Lake Regional Park will once again serve as an off-leash dog park for the weekend of Oct. 6 and 7. Dogs can romp on the beach and play in the water from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.
This “Water Bark” event is sponsored by the Sonoma County Regional Parks Foundation, which requests donations of $3 a dog for Regional Park members and $5 a dog for non-members. All proceeds benefit the foundation, which supports Regional Parks’ programs and operations.
The first 250 dogs each day will get a free, dog-safe flying disc courtesy of Anderson Acres Canine Guest Ranch. Dogs also will receive free treats donated by Western Farm Center.
The event will include a raffle for prizes such as a year’s supply of dog treats, dog toys and Regional Parks’ Grateful Dead T-shirts. Raffle tickets are $3 each or four for $10.
Parking near the lagoon is accessed through Spring Lake Park’s Violetti Road entrance and is free for members and $7 for non-members. Due to health regulations, only dogs are allowed to swim at this event.
The swimming lagoon is treated with chlorine and was not affected by the algae bloom at Spring Lake earlier this year.
