The Meridian Park Family Aquatic Center’s final day of the 2021 summer season is Saturday.
The facility will be open from noon to 6 p.m., according to Shelbyville Parks and Recreation Department assistant director Trisha Tackett.
On Sunday, the 14th annual Doggie Day will mark the official closure of the water park. From 4 to 6 p.m., dogs and their owners can enjoy the facility. Admission is $7 per dog. There is no fee for owners.
All proceeds from Doggie Day will go to the Shelbyville/Shelby County Animal Shelter. Donations for the animal shelter also will be accepted, according to Tackett, who spoke Wednesday at the parks department board meeting.
The aquatic center will be closed after Sunday’s event. Routine maintenance will then begin as the facility is closed down until 2022.
