The City of Palmdale will host several canine-centric programs this summer at Yellen Dog Park, 5100 E. Ave. S, in Palmdale. The events are free and open to the public.

Dogs and owners are encouraged to dress up and celebrate this third annual summer costume party. Entertainment will include a fun photo area, paw art supplies, and a splash zone with pools. The best dressed owner/dog combo will win a basket of goodies.

There will be three “Keeping Canines Cool with Pools” programs taking place on Friday, July 9 and July 23 from 9 to 11 a.m., and Tuesday, Aug. 10, from 6 to 8 p.m. Pop-up dog pools will be provided in both the small and large dog areas. Music, treats, and water fun will all be part of these events.

Then on Saturday, Aug. 21 from 6 to 8 p.m., the dog days of summer will come to an end with an “End of Summer Splash.” Park staff will bring dog pools, host fun dog games, and provide some yummy treats.

Yellen Dog Park is open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
