The Springfield-Greene County Park Board hosts Dog Swim X, Tuesday, Sept. 3, 4-7 p.m. at Fassnight Pool, 1300 S. Campbell, Springfield.

Preregistration is strongly recommended, helping dogs and owners spend less time waiting in line and filling out paperwork. Proof of vaccination is required. Registration is $8 for one dog/one owner. Limit one dog per owner, please. Additional humans are $3. Check-in begins at 3:30 p.m. All proceeds benefit Cruse Dog Park, Springfield's first off-leash dog park.
