What is Lake Ridge Thinking - Fish and Dogs In Our People Pools?

By
Real Estate Broker with RE/MAX Real Estate Connections

Lake Ridge dog in pool



Before Spring break the Ridgewood pool is stocked with trout for a fishout. Of course, the pool is then thoroughly sanitized before it is open for the summer season.

Although Lake Ridge pools officially close to residents at the end of Labor Day, one pool remains in operation for the pleasure of Lake Ridge dogs.

On the Saturday following Labor Day the Tall Oaks pool reopens for the much anticipated and wildly popular "Doggie Paddle".

The competition is fierce as dogs display their talent with
  • Tennis Balls
  • Frisbees
There are no official events or even unofficial events, but it is obvious the dogs feel the need to defend their breed in those cases where one exists.

The Doggie Paddle is only one of many events the Lake Ridge Parks and Recreation Association plans for Lake Ridge residents. Some of the events include the annual community yard sale, hayrides, Halloween parade and costume contest.

Kristin  That may well be, but the Dept of Health has a different idea, because this is a public pool and all dogs are not clean
