Pool Hours
by S. A. on April 22nd, 2010

I live across from the pool and have never been bothered by late evening noise.

After sunset the majority of users are adults who use the pool to swim laps or to float / visit. It's a nice way to relax at the end of the day.

And being one of the only areas in the neighborhood with subtle lighting, it's also a wonderful space to watch the moon rise.

I would be in favor of officially extending the pools hours for residents to 10 PM.

Lynn and I live directly across from the basketball court on Mendez and Emma Long. We almost never, ever hear the pool. We aren't even bothered by the basketball court. Sometimes we are amazed by the vocal capacities of little kids in the playground, but not often.

We are in favor of extending pool hours to 10:00pm for residents.

Awesome, as it says above, 3 people living near the pool have no problems with the 10 pm closing hour, I know another link on the forum has at least 3 more houses that ditto that. I would be happy to personally go ask the other 2 or 3 houses left that are affected by pool noise so we can change the rule. How easy is that? Doesn't require a whole season or a committee. Done and done.

And I don't think we should get rid of the committee altogether, john, just on Thu@ issue.

So, by that logic, we should close the pool at 6 or 7 , whenever the non-residential swim is over. Or at least 8, since that was when stuff got stolen. No offence,but I don't think that argument holds any weight.

Hey, I apologize. I didn't mean it to come across that way, but on forums, it never does. I just didn't quite get the logic of your concerns. Especially since the park is open till 10 and there is a lot of activity elsewhere in the park, from residents and non-residents, e.g. the basketball courts, that could "distract". I suppose part of what you are saying is that we should make sure residents don't let non-residents in after hours. I agree with that. Once again, sorry about my tone.

Pool Hours

I live across from the pool and am a late night lap swimmer. Almost nightly last summer non residents were swimming after public hours and would put a rock in the gate to keep it open. I watched other residents let people in many times with multiple small children with one adult to watch them. If we all cannot follow the rules of residents only after public hours we may all lose our right to swim late in the quiet. It only takes one tragedy to ruin it for everyone. I am sure that at times there were people there last summer who could not swim with 4-5 young children who also did not have good swimming skills. This is dangerous. I felt bad saying no when asked to let non residents in to swim. It is not "fair" but it is the rule and for good reason. There is no guard on duty!

I also live directly across from the pool and am not bothered by any noise. I have no problem with it being kept open later than 9:00 although I wouldn't generally use it that late.
