Salina’s Kenwood Cove water park went to the dogs Monday evening.

After closing for the season on Sunday, the water park opened Monday evening for one final “Pooch Plunge”.

The event proved popular, with a large crowd of people enjoying the last swim of the summer with their best friend, their dog.

Only owners and their dogs were allowed in the water. They were able to swim in the wave pool and lazy river areas.

The “Pooch Plunge” is in its fifth year. The popular event has become the final event of the year at the water park.

Kenwood Cove is now closed for the season. It will open again on Memorial Day Weekend 2014.

It is so stupid that they are already closed for the season.

Ok why is K sal protecting the city commissioners and recreational department concerning the removal of an earlier post???????? When tax time comes around let them collect taxes from the dogs. We taxpayers voted this in and without us there would be no pool like this in Salina. Closing this pool early and not letting the taxpayers that do not want to hassel with the unruly kids a chance to spend a 3 weeks to enjoy the pool is unthinkable. Maybe the county needs to take the pool over as well so it is run properly. Hiring kids to run this pool is ok to a point but more adult supervision is needed and to keep the pool open until Labor Day. The commissioners closed down Greely Ave and have done nothing to repair the bridge and this was a main entrance to the grounds. They refuse to put a traffic signal at the midway and when someone gets killed there one day they will have to sell off the pool and bi-center to pay the family of the deceased. Stop playing games with us Mayor and commissioners or resign.

I agree my older parents enjoy going to the pool when the kids are not there and I am sure there are a bunch more seniors who would love to be able to use it during the week. Why am I still paying taxes on this if it is not going to run correctly?
