Possible to have an AP system my dog and I can swim in?

I am new here but I need the advice of experts! I am wanting to build a huge "koi pond" that is decorative where I can grow tilapia and an AP system but I want it to be like a swimming hole that my dog and I can swim in for physical therapy and fun! IS THIS POSSIBLE? or am I asking too much?
