August 23, 2022 – Sadly, Plymouth Pool isn’t going to the dogs this year. 

Amid reports of a canine parvovirus-like illness in Michigan dogs currently under investigation by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Midland Parks and Recreation has made the tough decision to cancel this year’s Pooches at the Pool dog swim event scheduled for Saturday, September 10. While a ‘ruff’ decision to make, the City of Midland is committed to keeping its furry, four-legged residents as safe as possible. 

All dogs and their humans that have already registered for the 2022 event have the option to keep their payment on file for the 2023 event or to receive a refund. Pooches at the Pool 2023 is currently scheduled for Saturday, September 9, 2023.

For more information on this cancellation, please contact Parks and Recreation at 989-837-6930 or by email at
