We encourage every person to be registered for the Pooch Party-Stroll and Splash as fees support the Nampa Dog Park. The Nampa Dog Park provides a safe place for people and their dogs to exercise and socialize. The Nampa Dog Park opened to the public on July 20, 2009, and we need your help to complete the park’s permanent restrooms and other amenities.

The Pooch Party-Stroll and Splash started in 2007 as the Pooch Pool Party, a dog only swimming event at Lakeview Pool. Given the overwhelming success of this event, we have expanded the party to include not only a dog swim, pet-friendly vendor booths and a raffle, but a 1-mile walk around Lakeview Park, entertainment, contests and more.
You can register at any Zamzows (up until one week prior to the event date), online, in-person at the Program Desk in the Nampa Recreation Center or by mail to:131 Constitution WayNampa, ID 83686
If you are unable to attend the event you may still register to receive a t-shirt and gift. You may also make a donation of any amount online or in-person at the Nampa Recreation Center Program Desk.
On the day of the event go to the info/registration table at the Pooch Party to sign up for the contests. All contest participants must be registered for the Pooch Party.
Any remaining t-shirts ($10) and gifts ($5) will be available for purchase at the Pooch Party or after the event at the Nampa Recreation Center.
You may pick up your packet at the Program Desk in the Nampa Recreation Center on the Friday before the event between 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. or at the registration booth on the day of the event beginning at 9 a.m. If you register online, please bring your printed confirmation. We suggest that you pick up your t-shirt packet prior to the day of the event.
Packet pickup and vendor booths open at 9 a.m. The one mile dog walk begins promptly at 10 a.m. at Lakeview Park. After the walk, participants will enjoy entertainment, booths, contests, raffle and the dog swim (the swimming pool opens at 11 a.m.).
Street traffic will be modified temporarily to accommodate the large number of walkers, so it is not possible to accommodate late arrivals. The walk begins promptly at 10 a.m. Packet pickup and vendor booths open at 9 a.m.
The festivities will take place at Lakeview Park, on 7th Street North. The start and finish line for the one mile walk will be located east of the swimming pool at Lakeview Park.
On the day of the event, free parking will be available in the Lakeview parking lots and on surrounding streets.
The Pooch Party-Stroll and Splash will go on rain or shine. The swimming portion of the event could be canceled if lightning occurs.
