Pool Opens Tomorrow 6/24
Posted on Jun 23rd, 2023
The pool will be open tomorrow Saturday, June 24. I would like to thank you all for your patience while the pool was closed. I understand this was an inconvenience for many. We look forward to a great rest of the pool season and seeing everyone enjoy the newly resurfaced pool.  
One minor additional repair is still in process for the wading pool, it may remain closed if that repair cannot be made this afternoon or tomorrow morning but will open in the next day or two.
Have great time enjoying the pool this summer! 
Pool Update
Posted on Jun 8th, 2023
Regrettably we must inform you that the pool will remain closed for approximately two weeks. The resurfacing of the pool that was done at the close of last season has failed causing large portions of the plaster to pull away from the surface producing sharp areas on surface of the pool. The failure of the plaster was not evident during the multiple pre-opening inspections of the pool and only became apparent after the plaster had been walked on when the pool was used for the first time on Memorial Weekend.   
Unfortunately, the entire pool must be delaminated and then re-plastered, the pool will need to remain empty while the contractor completes the work. Fortunately, the work is under warranty so the repairs will be at no cost to the Association.   
We understand this is a huge inconvenience however we want to ensure we remedy the matter properly so the pool will be fully functional the remainder of the summer. 
We will continue to keep you informed of when the pool will re-open. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to resolve this matter. If you have any questions, please contact Ashley Gonzalez by phone at 703-565-2019 or by email at
