Doggy paddlers to take over the Lido

Where: Sandford Parks Lido, Cheltenham

When: Saturday, October 13 & Sunday, October 14, 10am-6pm

The infamous dog swim returns to Sandford Parks Lido for its third year - and this year, it's bigger than ever, with two days solely dedicated to our canine friends.

Both days start at 10am and the facility will be open until 6pm.

Fear not! This is the last use of the pool in this summer season and the pool will be highly dosed with chemical, emptied and cleaned before the next human use for the Christmas Day Swim.

Stalls from various animal charities/animal-related products will be on site. There's still time to book a space. To do so please email fabia@sandfordparkslido.org.uk

The dog swim is taking place at the end of the lido's cold-water swimming period, therefore the water temperature will be lower than our normal operating temperature of 26C. The temperature will have decreased to 21C on the day of the dog swim. Wetsuits are welcome!

There will be qualified vets and their staff on site both days. There will also be lifeguards on duty but their responsibility is for the safety of people in the water. The dog's welfare remains the responsibility of the owner.

To book a space on either day, visit:

Saturday - https://sandfordparkslido.org.uk/events/2018-10-13-the-lido-dog-swim-saturday 

Sunday - https://sandfordparkslido.org.uk/events/2018-10-14-lido-dog-swim-sunday 

Human only spectators can enter both days for the price of £2.70 each.
