Swimming Pools

Elkins Lake has 2 swimming pools. The Manor House pool is located near the playgrounds and the Post Office. The Olympic pool is located at 1632 Greenbriar Dr.

Our goal for 2020 is to provide each Elkins Lake property owner convenient access to a safe, clean, fun and comfortable swimming environment. 

Have a fun and safe pool season!
 

Swimming Pool Procedures (as of 5/20/2020)
We will open the swimming pools this Saturday, but this will be the most adjusted amenity that we have to open. Guidelines from both the CDC and Governor Abbott will be in place to make the pools as safe as possible.

- Pool hours will be staggered to allow for closing the pools every 2 hours for cleaning. (see schedule below)

- Swimmers will be asked to leave the entire pool area at this time to allow for sanitizing chairs, rails, tables etc.

- Capacity limits will be set, and a gate guard will be on duty to monitor the number of swimmers at one time.

- Once the total occupancy hits these limits, you may be refused the ability to go in at that time. You will have the option to wait to see if someone comes out or they will maintain a ‘wait-list’ to come back at the next open period.

- A hand sanitizer station will be available at both pools, but feel free to also bring your own. 

- Chairs at both pools will be set up to provide for social distancing standards as set by the CDC so we ask that they not be moved from their positions.

- Pool parties will not be allowed at this time.

- Family members only will be allowed as guests at the pool and the restriction of 5 guests will still be in place (see golf course above for family members).

- Pools hours will be adjusted to accommodate cleaning schedules.

As mentioned, the pools have been one of the more difficult areas to reopen. We discussed multiple options prior to the following hours but after discussion with staff and Board members, we felt this would be the best and safest way to open under the occupancy limits. Based on the limited capacity available, a staggered schedule allows for more people to be able to utilize the pools.

During this time, and until further occupancy levels are adjusted, we ask for your patience and understanding as we begin to open the pools. In the event we can adjust in the future, we will make sure and notify every one of the changes.
