Annual Dog Swim at AV Symington Aquatic Center

On Saturday, Sept. 11, Ida Lee Park will hold its 13th annual Dog Swim at AV Symington Aquatic Center. The pool will be open for the dog-only swim for two sessions from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. 

The event allows local pups the opportunity to have fun in a safe, enclosed area while swimming off-leash with other dogs. All dogs must be six months old, legally licensed, vaccinated, and wearing a visible dog license. All exits will be gated and a veterinarian will be on-site as a precaution.

Limited space in each session is available and pre-registration is required. There will be no day of registration. Those attending must be at least 12 years of age with dog handlers being 16 years or older. At this time, masks are not required to be worn in the event area, but may be subject to change prior to event date. Please plan on maintaining a social distance of six feet from those not in their party, dogs excluded. 

The fee is $5.00 per person. Registration is currently available through WebTrac or by visiting the front desk at Ida Lee Recreation Center. Walk-up registration on the day of the event is not available. For more information, please visit or call 703-777-1368.
