It is very important that you ask your guests to complete a Hold Harmless Agreement before using the facility. This is especially important for July 4th. Each guest over the age of 18 must complete the agreement. If they will use the facility multiple times during the current calendar year, they only have to complete the form one time. Blank forms are located just inside the main door.
Drinks are now permitted in the pool IF AND ONLY IF the drinks are in plastic containers with lids.
Absolutely NO GLASS. Do not bring glass bottles and glass containers of any kind into any area of the facility.
Do not leave floats and other personal items in the pool area or anywhere inside the facility. Any items left overnight may be disposed of by the cleaning personnel.
Cleanup as you are leaving. Please place all trash in the trash cans. Thank you for keeping our facility clean and safe.
If you find that any of your access cards do not work, please contact Ann Kennedy at (864) 909-2006 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
