Does anyone know of any good places where dogs can swim around here? Any good entrances to the river or lakes or anything?

There is a place out at Castlewood State Park where you can take dogs to swim in the river. People swim there to, so we used to just take our girls down the river a bit from where the people were. Just be careful as sometimes there is sort of a strong current.

Other than that - i would LOVE to know of other places to take them swimming. We do the dog swims at the local swimming pools, but those are only once a year - around Labor Day.

Thanks! I picked up a flyer at the Dog park the other day about the swimming pool events. It is hosted by the Missouri Alliance for Animal Legislation,, you can probably go there to check out the dates. I don't know of anywhere else. I see people letting their dogs in Creve Couer Lake all the time, but the one time Julia got in there she ended up sick so we never let her in again.


Busy stirring- the pot...

I know this thread is kind of old, but I recently heard about a dog park out by Winghaven (Hwy 40/61 in O'Fallon) that has a lake in it for the dogs to swim. Haven't been there yet, so I don't know if its true or not, but I thought I'd mention it.

My cousin dogs get to swim in the pool at the Kirkwood Community Center. They hold a special day for dogs the last day when they close the pool for the year. They have a dog
