Dog Day at AGB on April 2
Registration for Dog Day at AGB is open! We have spots available in Medium/Big Dog Session #3 and Small Dog Session #2. Enjoy a special opportunity for your four-footed friend to doggy paddle indoors on April 2 as AGB prepares for major renovations. This event is free thanks to the generous sponsorship of Grateful Dogs of Juneau.
All dogs must be vaccinated and play well with others. If your dog has a history of aggression towards other dogs or humans, please do not register for this event. Due to vaccination requirements, dogs younger than 16 weeks of age are not allowed to participate. Two humans may accompany each dog into the facility. Please note that these swims are dogs only; humans will not be allowed into the water. Find all the details about registration requirements and the event here.

AGB 50th Anniversary FREE Swims
August G. Brown Swimming Pool continues to celebrate 50 years as Juneau's community pool with free anniversary swim sessions. Free anniversary swims will take place over two sessions on Saturday, April 1: Session 1 from 3-4 p.m.; and Session 2 from 4:30-5:30 p.m.
Each session is limited to 100 swimmers. Admission is first-come, first-served—no registration necessary. Swim sessions are free of charge thanks to the generous sponsorship of Juneau-Gastineau Rotary Club.
AGB Community Tile Art Project
Alongside AGB's renovations, the pool lobby will welcome a new community art project in honor of the milestone anniversary. The project, titled "Celebrating Generations of Community," pays homage to the pool's importance for Juneau children past and present. An aquatic mural will incorporate images of tiles from the current locker room showers—designed by Juneau second and third graders in 1999—alongside ceramic titles featuring artwork submitted by children today.
Children age 12 and under can use the AGB tile art coloring page, available online or at the pool, to create artwork celebrating their favorite memories at Augustus Brown Pool. Submissions are open through March 31 at the AGB front desk, one entry per child.
Join the new CBJ Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee
The City & Borough of Juneau is recruiting nine community members for a new Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee (PRAC). The PRAC is appointed by the CBJ Assembly and advises the Assembly and the Parks & Recreation Department on all aspects of recreation in our community, including parks, trails, aquatics, Treadwell Arena, the Jensen-Olson Arboretum, Youth Services, recreational sports, and more. The Committee reviews fee schedules, construction projects, master plans, and regulations that affect public use of parks and recreation facilities.
The PRAC meets the first Tuesday of every month, with additional meetings scheduled as needed. Meetings are held in person at City Hall and simulcast via Zoom. To apply for the new PRAC, go here.
The Assembly seeks applicants who represent diverse cultural, social, political, technical, and economic viewpoints to ensure wide-ranging and active debate. Applications should be submitted by April 10, 2023 for consideration by the Assembly.
Augustus Brown Pool Renovations
The Augustus G. Brown Swimming Pool will close for major renovations from April 3, 2023 through early 2024. These important renovations will make AGB more accessible, energy-efficient, and user-friendly, combining deferred maintenance with functional improvements to prepare AGB for a new era of Juneau swimmers. Major steps include new efficient boiler heating plants, air handling units, and LED lighting. The main entry will be fully renovated with a new ADA ramp, entry sidewalk, entry stairs, and interior doors powered with ADA openers. Other improvements include a new public address (PA) system; new plaster, tiling, and fiberglass doors; and upgrades to locker rooms, family changing room, and sauna.
