Dog Swim at Sandford Parks Lido

Saturday 12 - Sunday 13 October 2024

The annual Dog Swim event returns! This is at the end of the season and following all human swimming sessions.

Some breeds of dog are naturals in the water and others sink like a brick and you are encouraged to enter the water with your dog, especially if they need the help.  If you’re at all unsure about your dog’s ability to swim in the water then please come ready and prepared to enter the water.  You know your dog best.

There must be a minimum of one adult to one dog on entry to the site (adult aged 16+). Each ticket allows entry for 1 dog and 2 humans.

The Dog Swim is taking place at the end of the Cold Water swimming period and as such the water temperature will be lower than the normal operating temperature of 26C.  The temperature will have decreased to 21C on the day of the Dog Swim.

When you arrive at the lido please keep your dog on a lead when they are in the grounds and only let them off when they enter the water.

Please be a considerate dog owner, cleaning up afterwards and also removing your dog away from any barking arguments.

There will be lifeguards on duty but their responsibility is for the safety of you in the water.  The dog’s welfare remains the responsibility of the owner.  You will be expected to sign a disclaimer upon entry to the site.

N.B. This is the last use of the pool in the summer season and the pool will be highly dosed with chemical and cleaned before the next human use on the Christmas Day Swim.

Also on 19 & 20 October
