The County's Parks and Recreation Department has planned two events to allow you to enjoy our parks with your favorite canine companion and help out the Animal Shelter at the same time. Proceeds from these two upcoming events also go to support the County's youth recreational programs. Consider having a date with your dog on:
Thursday, August 8, 2019
Doggie Date Night at Brommer Street Park
1451 30th Ave in Santa Cruz.
Bring a blanket, low back chairs, and your dog to watch the movie The Secret Life of Pets! Admission is FREE and food and beer will be provided by Tacos El Chuy and Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing Company. Also, the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Department will be there creating Child ID Packets for families. Well-behaved dogs on a leash are welcome.
You also don't want to miss the
5th Annual Parks & Rex pool party at the Simpkins Family Swim Center on:
Saturday, August 24, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The whole family will have a blast at this fun-in-the-sun pool party for adults, children and, of course, your dog(s)! Pool activities will run all day, including walking-on-water balls, stand-up paddle boards, inner tubes, a climbing wall, an inflatable obstacle course, a waterslide, and for younger children, a jump house! Great food will be served for everyone enjoying this day in the sun. There will also be a raffle with prizes from local Santa Cruz businesses and music.
