Lincoln's public swimming pools will be closing for the season Sunday, August 14. All pools are scheduled to close at 6 p.m.
The season at Star City Shores also ends at 6 p.m. Sunday, but the pool will host one more public event that night – Dog Splash is set for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 per dog and will go on sale at 6 p.m. at the front gates. Each dog may be accompanied by up to two adults and one child at least 8 years of age.
Dog Splash features an area for small dogs (measuring 15 inches from the shoulder or less) and retrieval activities in the lap lanes. When the dogs are not in the water, they must be on a leash. Plastic bags will be provided for clean up. Dog splash is sponsored by the Lincoln Parks Foundation and the Greater Lincoln Obedience Club.
