It is that time of year again. The dog days of summer are here. Most pools, in general, close to the public after Labor Day. That means swim time is running out for us, but not for our furry friends. Before the pool is drained for the season, Bristol, Tennessee Parks and Recreation always remembers their doggie pals. The department will be hosting its 9th Annual Doggie Swim at Haynesfield Pool where the dogs will take over from September 4-8, 2018. With hours for Tuesday through Friday being, 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm, and on Saturday, from noon until 4:00 pm.
