Residents can enjoy a day at the park with their four-legged family members. This year’s activities include a doggy splash pad, photo booth, agility tunnel, a paw print memento to take home, and lots of hiking opportunities. Special guests will include a DWR K-9 team who will perform unit demonstrations, Morgan’s Mutts Rescue and Adoption Center, and Amelia Animal Control. Sailor’s Creek will also accept donations for local animal shelters.

This event is free to the public. Guests are encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water. All pets must be on a leash not over 6 feet long and under immediate control at all times.
