Spring Lake Water Bark
October 1$8 – $50
The Spring Lake Water Bark is a fundraiser for the Sonoma County Regional Parks Foundation, which raises money for more than 50 dog-friendly parks and trails in the Sonoma County Regional Parks system.
One of the most popular dog events in the Bay Area, this event opens the swimming lagoon for dogs to enjoy off-leash romping and swimming. The water in the lagoon is filtered, chlorinated and closely monitored by Regional Parks staff to ensure it is safe for dogs. The lagoon is separate from Spring Lake, which is not treated.
Save the dates for the 2023 Water Park on September 9-10, 17, 23-24, September 30-October 1. Tickets are available online now, or at the gate, $12 for Park Members and $15 for Non-Members. Advance Tickets are $8 for members and $12 for non-members.
Season Passes are available to both Park Members and Non-members for $50. Tickets and Passes are per dog, with up to 3 dogs per human.
The Spring Lake Water Bark is a fundraiser, helping to raise funds for trails and other amenities in 50+ dog-friendly Sonoma County Regional Parks. Your admission fee also covers the cost of treating and monitoring the swimming lagoon to ensure the water is safe and healthy for your pup!
New this year! Regional Parks will keep the Spring Lake boat rentals open during Water Bark weekends. If you would like to take your dog on a standup paddleboard or kayak before or after visiting the Water Bark, please know that all dogs are required to have a dog life jacket to go on a boat. Dog life jackets are not required for the dog to swim at the Water Bark.
