Puppy Pool Party Raising Money for U City Dog Park
The fun continues today at the Heman Park Pool.
Dogs and their owners can hit the water at the Heman Park Pool today for the final day of the 10th annual end of season University City Puppy Pool Party.
The party will be held from noon-4 p.m.
The dog splash, which is the primary fundraiser for the University City Dog Park each year, brings dogs to the Heman Park Pool to splash and play.
This year the Dog Park also is selling $65 plaques at the event. Purchasers can choose the inscription for the plaque, which will be hung at the dog park. Organizers are trying to raise funds for lights at the park, to keep it open past 4 p.m.
