On September 13th, the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission (CCPRC) welcomes all hounds and pooches to enjoy the dog days of summer at the Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark in North Charleston.
Dogs and their owners will have to sign up in advance to attend one of the two Dog Day Afternoon sessions to enjoy the waterpark. The Lazy River, the Big Kahuna Wave Pool, and Otter Bay Kiddie Pool area will be open for all four-legged visitors, while slides and plunge pools will be closed.
The two sessions will be held from 10 am to 12 pm and from 1 pm to 3 pm. Each session will have a limited capacity of 400 dogs. Advance registration is required and is $12 per dog. There will be no registration at the gate. Owners get in free with their dogs. Guests will be encouraged to wear masks and to practice social distancing during Dog Day Afternoon.
Dogs must be up to date on all necessary vaccinations to enter the event. While in the park and for the safety of all guests, owners are responsible to keep their dogs at hand and under control at all times. To maximize the fun and space for the pups, owners should not go past knee depth in the water. Female dogs in heat and puppies under six months old are not allowed.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase at park concession stands for the humans and fresh water will be available for the dogs.
Advance registration is required and closes at 2 pm on September 12th - or when each session sells out. There will be no on-site registration. Space for these events is limited, so interested dog owners should register today at CharlestonCountyParks.com.
