Acwoof's & Waves
The Acworth Parks, Recreation and Community Resource Department is excited to host our first ever doggie beach day at Dallas Landing Park on Saturday, September 22! The event will consist of two time slots for dogs of all sizes. Small/Medium breeds will be from 1:00-2:00 p.m. and Medium/Large breeds will be from 2:30-3:30 p.m. This event is open to all non-aggressive dogs who are spayed/neutered and current on their shots. Veterinary records will be required.
Bring your furry friend and enjoy a day in the water, sand, and sun! Acworth doesn’t normally allow dogs on the sandy beach areas so you won’t want to miss out on this unique event! No need to bring swimwear for yourself or family members. The swim area will be open for K-9 swimmers only.
Registration for this event opens on August 1 for City of Acworth residents and August 8 for non-residents. Cost will be $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents.
