Start: Jul 20, 2020 - End: Aug 22, 2020
With the closures of the Cedar Rapids pools for the season, it is with saddened hearts that the Board of Directors for the Off-Leash parks had to announce K9Splash! 2020 would not be held this year at Bever Park Pool. Instead, we are going virtual for the weekend of Aug 8th and 9th!
The weekend will go to the dogs as K9COLA (Citizens for Off-Leash Areas) and the City of Cedar Rapids Parks & Recreation Department once again host K9Splash! dog swim virtually in Cedar Rapids. Join us on our Facebook page and watch dogs of all breeds splash up some fun and support a great cause! There are even chances to win prizes!
K9COLA is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that works with the City of Cedar Rapids to support, develop, and maintain off-leash areas in the Cedar Rapids community. We provide the community with educational information and raise money for park improvement projects and park maintenance. Proceeds will benefit the two off-leash parks in Cedar Rapids. As our largest fundraiser, the event brings more than 800 dogs and over 1500 people to Bever Park Pool to watch the dogs enjoy the water, swimming and playing fetch to their heart’s content.
Many of the maintenance projects and upgrades that were planned for 2020 will have to be put on hold if we are not able to raise enough funds. With your generous contribution we hope to complete a few initiatives: plant additional trees at K9Acres, repair a pavilion at Cheyenne, move a pavilion at Cheyenne, place permeable surface watering areas at both parks, and add agility equipment to the small dog areas.
Would you consider buying a t-shirt or other merchandise to help support our parks?
K9Splash! The weekend that truly goes to the dogs!
