2018 Pooch Paddle
Riverside Pool will host the Pooch Paddle on Monday, August 20 from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. for small pooches and Tuesday, August 21 from 5:00 p.m. – 7 p.m. for large pooches. We ask 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 the furry users. Riverside Pool is drained shortly after the event.
