2017 Spring Lake Water Bark
Bring your happy dogs for a memorable day of water play! Purchase tickets here or at the door.
Water Bark events will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on FOUR weekends in September: Sept. 9-10, 17, 23-24, 30 and October 1. *Note that there will be NO WATER BARK ON SATURDAY, SEPT. 16.*
Remember: Each *dog* needs a ticket or a season pass, not each person!
The Sonoma County Regional Parks Foundation is collaborating with Sonoma County Regional Parks to offer this hugely popular event permitting off-leash swimming for dogs.
Award-winning local photographer Julie Vader will once again take high-resolution action pictures of your happy, wet doggies as they have fun. The photos will be available the next day online (www.julievader.com) and can be downloaded for as little as $10 for a social-media size copy, with higher prices for larger digital sizes and prints. Half of each photo purchase will be donated to the Parks Foundation.
Buy your tickets here for faster entry at the event; tickets will also be available at the gate on each Water Bark day. **Note that entry ticket does not cover a daily parking fee of $7. Parking is free for Regional Parks members.**
**New this year -- Season Pass!**
By popular demand, we are introducing a season pass to the Water Bark. For just $30, you can skip the lines after your first visit and enjoy the Water Bark throughout September (and October 1) 2017.
During the Water Bark, a temporary fence is put in place, keeping dogs close at hand and out of other areas of Spring Lake Park. Water at the Spring Lake Swimming Lagoon is slightly chlorinated and filtered, ensuring that dogs have a safe environment for swimming.
We are grateful for the support of sponsors Paradise Pet Resort, AcCounting on Computers, Green Valley Consulting Engineers, Mary's Pizza Shack and Julie Vader Photography.
By purchasing these tickets, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Sonoma County Regional Parks Foundation, the property owner, the event organizers, and their officers, employees and volunteers from any actions, claims, damages, suits or expenses that may be brought as a result of participation in this event.
