  • An adult can bring along at a maximum two dogs.
  • Owners can just walk in without registering and sign in at the spot.
  • Rabies vaccination proof must be provided.
  • Visitors 12 or older who just wish to view the activity at the pools by the side are allowed
  • Any dogs showing signs of aggression will be removed from the pool area.
