Hounds at Hawaiian Falls, benefitting MADE in Texas Assistance Dogs, 490 Heritage Pkwy, Mansfield, TX 76063, September 9, 2018, 12:00PM-4:00PM


Pups and their human pals across North Texas are howling with excitement for Hounds at Hawaiian Falls! A community event geared towards the entire family, K9 kids included, Hounds at Hawaiian Falls presents a unique opportunity for pet parents to bring their pups for a day of fun in the sun at the water park, on the last day before the pools are drained and we say farewell to the summer season. Expect a tail-waggin’ good time with pups allowed in the Waikiki Beach Wave Pool, the Splashwater Reef Kiddie Pool, and the Kona Kooler Lazy River. There will also be refreshments for pups and people, games, giveaways, pet adoptions, and more!

Hounds at Hawaiian Falls seeks to honor those who serve our country by providing 250 complimentary admission tickets to veterans, active military, and first responders. These individuals are welcome to bring up to two dogs each at no cost, or come on their own. Our nation’s heroes do not need to purchase a ticket – simply reserve a ticket online, show identification or proof of service at the gate, and have a blast on us!

Hounds at Hawaiian Falls benefits MADE in Texas Assistance Dogs, a North Texas non-profit dedicated to providing highly trained service dogs to children and adults with disabilities. MADE’s service dogs act as lifeguards every day for their disabled partners so we are happy to give them a chance to take a break for a swim. For this pool party, humans are mandatory; dogs are optional but highly encouraged!

Pups will be welcome at the Waikiki Beach Wave Pool, the Splashwater Reef Kiddie Pool, and the Kona Kooler Lazy River. Please see the map below for locations of the dog-friendly park areas.
