The Spring Lake Water Bark is a fundraiser for the Sonoma County Regional Parks Foundation, which raises money for more than 50 dog-friendly parks and trails in the Sonoma County Regional Parks system.
One of the most popular dog events in the Bay Area, this event opens the swimming lagoon for dogs to enjoy off-leash romping and swimming. The water in the lagoon is filtered, chlorinated and closely monitored by Regional Parks staff to ensure it is safe for dogs. The lagoon is separate from Spring Lake, which is not treated.
Dates and times for the 2021 Water Bark event are the following separate sessions:
Saturday and Sunday, October 2-3, 2021, 9 a.m. to Noon and Noon to 4 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday, October 9-10, 2021, 9 a.m. to Noon and Noon to 4 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday, October 16-17, 2021, 9 a.m. to Noon and Noon to 4 p.m.
Morning and afternoon sessions are available to minimize entry wait time and crowding. You are welcome to enter at any time during your ticketed session. Wait times will be shorter mid-session.
We strongly encourage you to purchase your tickets in advance.
