Pool Hours
by Catherine on March 10th, 2010

Is it too early to think about this year's swim schedule?

Here's my proposal based on last summer's experience and lots of conversations with residents and visitors alike:

Before Memorial Day:
6 am - 10 pm residents only (guests of course)

Summer Hours:
6 am - 1 pm residents only
2 pm - 8 pm public
8:30 pm - 10 pm residents only

The reasoning:

Closing time: 10:00 pm always. Parents say that by the time the kids are in bed, seems like it's 9:00 already. Singles say they want that nice quiet time after work or a long weekend day of doing whatever single people do. (I no longer remember!) No one who lives by the pool has chimed in to say the 9:00-10:00 hour bothers them so why not keep it open till the park closes?

Public Hours: 2-8 instead of 1-7. I always felt I wasn't ready to leave for lunch at 12:00 and would have enjoyed that extra hour. Evenings, by the time everyone's home from work and fed, it's already 6:00. That only leaves one hour to swim. If the lifeguards keep to a 30 minute turn around time that would create a nice evening swim from 8:30 to 10:00.

Any other ideas? Seems like we should discuss it now to give our illustrious and hard working Pool Committee a chance to think about it before the season is upon us.

We live right next to the pool (Mattie/McCloskey) and noise has never really been an issue (except for the ice cream jalopy that parks outside of our door throughout the summer months), so I don't have a problem with the pool staying open until 10.

The nice thing about the pool reopening to residents at 7:30 was that there is still a bit of sunlight out, but I can understand where you're coming from with the suggestion of moving the public swim time.

I agree that we would like the public hours to change to 2-8 and getting the lifeguards to do a 30 minute turn around. 12:00 is too early. Many times when we were there this summer they let us stay on the grass and it only took them 15 minutes to set up.

I was wondering why it even has to close for residents for an hour during life guard switch out? Couldn't residents be allowed to reenter immediately with our keys once they send everyone out? Does anyone know if there is another reason that we have to stay out so long?

I would also love to see the pool remain open every day of the week. I think last year it was closed on Mondays. In our last community I don't think they closed the pool for an entire day, but I could be wrong.

When I complained last year about the hour closing I was told that the life guards needed the time to prep and that we were not allowed to be in the pool area while that was happening. However it usually took them about 15 minutes max to set up and most of the time they just asked us to get out of the pool.
As for the Monday closure, I was told that it was for pool maintenance. Again it does not take a whole day to maintain a pool. How about if they close it 2 hours early on Mondays??

It may be possible that there needs to be a time for any chemicals they add to dissipate.

I believe some of the pool rules are dictated by the city since the city partially subsidizes the pool.

How likely is it that we can change these seemingly arbitrary rules? It seems like they could change the closing time in two minutes, and yet it wasn't changed all last summer. I am totally up for the 10 pm closing time, 9 just seems ridiculous and I can't figure out why on earth it was chosen, not only because those living around the pool seem to have no problem with noise levels, but even if they did, city ordinance noise levels is set for 10 pm anyways.

Just got the notification that the pool hours are 5 am - 9 pm. I live across from the pool and am fine with 5 am if folks are quiet but I'd still love to see a 10 pm close.

I do not believe that the city subsidizes the pool in any way. The expenditure falls solely upon the POA.
