“Dear PoP,

I hear a rumor that dogs are allowed in the public pools on the last day of labor day weekend. Is this true? Where can I take my pup swimming?”

Last year the first DPR Doggie Day Swim took place Sat. Sept. 12th. I have not seen a date announced yet for this year or if there are plans for this year. Last year the two participating pools were the Upshur Pool, 4300 Arkansas Avenue, NW, and the Francis Pool, 25th and N Streets, NW. I’ll be sure to update if/when this year’s date is released.
