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 opened 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.
