Pool season to end; dogs swim Tuesday

With the school year now in full-swing, the Lawrence swimming pool's hours have changed.

Monday is the last day to soak up the sun and splash around at the Outdoor Aquatic Center, 727 Ky.

Then it will go to the dogs.

Before the pool is drained for the off-season, the sixth annual Pooch Plunge will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday. For $5, dogs (with proof of a rabies vaccination) are allowed to swim. Local businesses and organizations also will provide treats and pet information.
