Dog Days at Hawaiian Falls
The dog days of summer may be coming to an end, but your dog’s chance at summer fun is just around the corner. After the last day of the regular season, Hawaiian Falls locations in The Colony, Mansfield, and Garland welcome pet owners and their canine friends for their annual dog-swim events.
All dogs are required to have complete, up-to-date vaccinations and rabies shots to attend. Additionally, separate pool areas will be set aside for large- and small-breed dogs.
Hawaiian Falls’ season passes are not valid for admission as this is a post-season fundraiser for various DFW animal rescue groups.
