The Pool Opens this Saturday
Updated: May 21
Pool is Opening this Saturday, May 22!
As you may have heard, the State of Colorado and Tri-County Health Department have recently relaxed COVID-19 restrictions and protocols, and we’ve updated our own rules to reflect these changes.
We’re excited to open our pool this weekend without the social-distancing, mask requirements and capacity restrictions that were necessary last season due to the pandemic. This means we can also resume allowing our residents to bring guests to the pool.
That said, we have some changes to our guest policy that we’d like to share. We will now be implementing a punch card system for guests. Please click here for details on these changes and other pool policies.
Please remember to register your household for the pool this season. We will be distributing punch cards to all registered households starting on opening day, this Saturday, May 22nd at the pool.
Please be sure to review all of the information below as well as the 2021 pool rules.
To get started swimming, please follow these steps:
Step 1: Review the 2021 Pool Rules & Restrictions
Please take time to read through the 2021 Pool Rules. Step 2: Register Your Household We ask that all Forest Park residents complete the 2021 Pool Access & Registration form. This is necessary to maintain security and access to the neighborhood pool by Forest Park residents only (children included). Homeowners with long-term renters are required to complete the 2021 Pool Registration for Long Term Renters in order to allow lessees to access the pool. In this case, the homeowner relinquishes these rights to a lessee for a defined period of time.
Step 3: Necessary Waivers Waivers are required for morning lap swimming, and unaccompanied underage swimmers at the pool.
Step 4: Be Prepared! When preparing for your trip to the pool, remember these unique rules:
Bring a photo ID to check-in. Lifeguards must be able to confirm who you are against the list of Forest Park residents and those who have completed Access & Registration form.
Guests. Please remember to bring your punch card. Member families are extended the privilege of hosting up to 20 guests over the duration of the pool season. Each member family can request and be issued a guest voucher card that will be decremented at check-in time by the lifeguard when bringing guests. Member families may purchase additional guest vouchers in the same quantity of 20. The pricing for guest pass voucher cards will be $0 for the first, $25 for the second and $50 for any additional cards.
Children ages 10 and under need adult supervision; Children ages 11 and older need a waiver. All children under 11 must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times. Children age 11-17 who plan on swimming at the pool unaccompanied must have an adult check them in at the pool, or have a photo ID (like a driver's license) and have a parent complete an Underage Accompanied Swimmer waiver in advance.
The grills will be available for use this year.
Lounge chairs and personal chairs. Lounge chairs will be placed in the normal pattern. If you feel more comfortable bringing your own chairs, please do so.
Drinking water. The bottle filler will be available.
Bring a mask and hand sanitizer. Masks will be required when entering/exiting the restrooms.
No keycard required, except for morning lap swimming. Keycards will not be used this year, as all entrance to the pool will be monitored through the check-in process with a lifeguard. Morning lap swimmers still need to use a keycard for entrance.
Review all rules! Review the full list of rules and regulations in the 2021 Pool Rules. We will notify you if the rules outlined above are modified to reflect the most current guidelines.
