13th Annual Pooch Paddle
Riverside Pool will host a pooch paddle Monday, August 21 from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. for small
pooches and Tuesday, August 22 from 5:00 p.m. – 7 p.m. for large pooches. We ask that small
pooches are at your knee height or shorter, weigh less than 40 lbs, and attend the session on
Monday. Larger pooches may enjoy the pool on Tuesday. The cost is only $5 per dog; and, all
the money raised goes back to the dog park in Sioux City.
City staff would like to remind citizens the Pooch Paddle event is only allowed in the public pool
after it has been closed for the season. Chemicals remain in the pool to keep it sanitized and
safe for our furry users. Riverside Pool is drained shortly after the event.
