  • The cost is $15 per dog; humans get in free.
  • Humans are not allowed in the pool with the dogs.
  • A lifeguard will be on duty.
  • Dogs must be at least 6 months old and have proof that they are licensed and up-to-date on vaccinations. Licenses can be purchased at the event.

  • Stairs are available for dogs to enter and leave the water.

After the event, the pool will be drained and cleaned and will undergo its regular preventive maintenance. The Queen Anne Pool is located at 1920 First Ave. W. Please call 206-386-4282 for more information.
