Making a Splash: Doggie Paddle Days at Pelican Bay Aquatic Center

As the summer sun casts its final warm rays of the season, Pelican Bay Aquatic Center opens its doors for a day unlike any other, inviting dog owners and their cherished pets to partake in an aquatic adventure designed exclusively for them. Doggie Paddle Days is not merely an event; it’s a celebration for dogs and their humans, offering a unique opportunity for pets/furry family members to enjoy the exhilarating pleasure of swimming in our pools. Join us as we dive into the heartwarming world of Doggie Paddle Days, highlighting the countless ways in which this event enriches the lives of residents, strengthens community ties, and exemplifies the positive impact of sports facilities and recreation centers on individual and communal well-being.


A Tail-Wagging Tradition

At the end of the summer season, dogs of all shapes, sizes, and breeds are invited to dive into the pools at Pelican Bay, enjoying a refreshing escape from the heat and an opportunity to socialize with their fellow canines. Structured to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all participants, the event is divided into sessions based on dog size, allowing every pup—from the tiniest terrier to the most majestic mastiff—a chance to paddle, play, and make a splash. With lifeguards on duty and pet-friendly amenities throughout, Pelican Bay ensures a fun-filled and secure environment for all.


Community and Canine Connection

The impact of Doggie Paddle Days extends far beyond the poolside. This event not only offers a unique recreational activity for dogs and their owners but also fosters a strong sense of community among participants. It’s a day filled with laughter, joy, and the kind of pure, unadulterated happiness that only our furry friends can inspire. Doggie Paddle Days highlights the economic and social benefits of pet-friendly events within a community. Local businesses often participate, including dog bakers and even a dog chiropractor last year, which drives local tourism and encourages spending. It’s a shining example of how innovative events can stimulate the local economy while promoting inclusivity and community spirit.



A Commitment to Excellence

The success of Doggie Paddle Days is a reflection of the Pelican Bay Aquatic Center’s dedication to providing exceptional experiences for both residents and visitors of Edmond, Oklahoma (and Edmond’s fondness for dogs). By embracing creativity and responding to the interests of the community, Pelican Bay continues to set the standard for recreational excellence. This event also underscores the importance of public spaces in enhancing the quality of life for all community members—two-legged and four-legged alike. It’s a celebration of the bonds we share with our pets and a reminder of the joy they bring into our lives every day.
