HARRISBURG, S.D. (KELO) — An indoor water park for dogs, along with a tiki bar for pets and their owners, is coming to Harrisburg.
The Resort by SDK will start work on the project this summer and hopes to have it done by late fall.
“My husband and I have been in the dog business for 12 years. We’re always looking for unique options for dogs while they’re boarding or in day care,” Owner Teri Jo Olean said.
Olean says the water park will include things like palm tree and beach ball sprinklers, along with a puddle play, where water will pool to a couple of inches and refresh every 15 minutes, so it always stays fresh and clean.
“We want this to be a destination for dogs. They can hang out with their buddies no matter the weather and wear off some energy,” Olean said.
The water park will be open to dogs that are staying at the resort, and sometimes they will open it to the public as well.
“We’re not releasing all of the drink ideas for our tiki bar just yet, but there will be puppy piña coladas,” Olean said.
The resort is located on South Minnesota Avenue across from the Country Apple Orchard.
In addition to the water park and tiki bar, the owners are also building more suites for boarding guests and another indoor playroom for daycare dogs.
