Dogs to Cause a Splash at Cypress Gardens

As you know, the summer months in Orlando can get quite hot. While us humans can just cool off with a nice dip in the pool or grab some ice cream to bring down our body temperature, the dogs are usually left inside to sit in the AC. Well, all of that is about to change! Give your dog a refreshing new break from the heat by heading over to Cypress Gardens on October 4th from 11 am to 3 pm for “Rusty’s Pool Party.” Cypress Gardens will be going to the dogs for one day only! Held at Cypress Garden’s Splash Island Waterpark, dogs will be allowed to be let off the leash and take a dip in the pool themselves! Reward your dog for a long summer spent in the AC with this invigorating change of pace!

Dogs can slip and slide throughout the water park and cool off from the summer heat at this ultimate canine pool party! Let your dog take a swim in the wave pool or climb up the Polynesian Adventure Water Fortress! And, treat your dog to a chicken-flavored snow-cone to cool off that panting tongue! There are plenty of activities for owners and guests, as well. There will be lots of fun games and even a canine bathing suit contest.

Cypress Gardens has paired up with the Polk County Humane Society for this unique event. For only $10 a dog and their owner can enter the pool party. Additional members to the party can enter the park for only $5 each. Children 9 and under are allowed in for FREE! All of the proceeds go towards the Polk County Humane Society. Spaces are limited, so we highly recommend that you participate in advanced registration! The application for your dog to participate can be found on the Polk County Humane Society website. Register today and spoil your four-legged friend at this special event!

Only one dog per human owner is allowed and dogs must have proof of current vaccinations. No child under the age of 16 will be allowed into the park without adult supervision.
