Dogs will be allowed into Chillicothe’s new water park on the final day of the season. The first ever “Doggie Dip” will run from 6:00 to 7:00 Monday evening.

Admission is $5. One animal per human will be allowed to come for a swim.

This is the final weekend the new water park will be open. “We’ll be open Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from 12 to 6. It’s supposed to be really hot all this week,” Holland said, “Hopefully this weekend, if you have visitors, come on out to Chilli Bay.”

The $4.2 million facility opened in June.
