It wasn’t just another day at the park.
Oakland County Waterparks are officially closed for the summer. The closed sign prominent at the front gate, but last weekend families and their dogs were invited in for a little fetch and a lot of fun.
Tennis balls littered the pool as dozens of dogs dove in from all sides, using their best doggy-paddle to reach the closest one.
Oakland County Parks and Recreation‘s Waterford Oaks Waterpark and Red Oaks Waterpark hosted the 11th annual dog swim on September 10th and 11th; and it was clear, all dogs were in heaven dipping and diving into the blue water of the park’s wave pool.
