2022 POOL FAQ

Can we bring guests to the pool?

YES! Our normal guest policy has been resumed and the guest fee is still just $1.00 per guest!  Guests attending more than one swim session for that same day do not need to pay again.

How early can we arrive for Open Swim?

Open Swim starts at 12:00pm, 2:00pm and 4:00pm.  The doors will open 5-minutes prior for check-in.  Please expect a busy check-in for the first few days as we have many new lifeguards and all guards need to verify registrations.

What happens if I arrive late to an Open Swim Session?

You can still swim- just keep in mind that the swim session does end at a specific time (1:30, 3:30, 5:30) and everyone must leave at the end of each session (except adults who arrived early for Adult Swim). There is no entry after 7:00pm (pool closes at 7:30).

Do we really have to leave at the end of each Open Swim Session?

Yes.  Just like at a normal pool- when the session ends, you need to leave and take all of your belongings with you.  There cannot be any youth in the pool area during the Adult Swim sessions and we understand this will be an adjustment for everyone.  For those with children, you might consider getting them out of the pool 5-10 minutes early to allow time for showering.  The only people who do not need to leave are those who are there for “Adult Swim” (age 18+)

Can I come back for another Open Swim Session later in the day?

Of course! 

Are there still 30-minute “Adult Swim” sessions during the daytime?

Yes! At 1:30, 3:30, 5:30 and 7:00pm. Adults who desire more than 30 minutes are welcome to arrive early- during Open Swim or stay late into the next Open Swim session.  

Can kids play arcade games during the “Adult Swim” sessions?

No. Not during the Adult Swim sessions. There cannot be any minors in the Rec Center nor in the pool area. They can play arcade games during all of the Open Swim and Family Swim sessions- that’s 6 hours of game time available!

What is Family Swim?

Family Swim requires that adults are IN the pool with their children, but you do not need to have children in order to participate in Family Swim. Family swim starts at 6:00pm and is typically a calmer environment than Open Swim.  Family Swim ends at 6:45 pm UNLESS nobody shows up for the “Adult Swim” session that immediately follows.  In this case, the session is extended to 7:30pm.

What time does the pool close?

The pool closes at 7:30pm.  All patrons must leave the facility no later than 7:40pm. There is no entry after 7:00pm.

Can we rent the pool for a pool party?

Yes!  The pool can be rented for private parties- on Friday nights or Saturday nights only.  The pool and rec center will be closed to residents starting at 6pm. Pool parties include 2 lifeguards who will remain on site for the duration of the pool hours, which are from 6:30-8:45pm. After the pool is closed, there should not be anyone outside in the pool area. Visit the Pool Party page for more information.

Can we rent the Rec Center for a party?

The Rec Center can be rented as part of a pool party, but cannot be rented separately during the pool season.  If you are interested in renting the Rec Center for a private event after the pool season ends, please visit the Rec Center Rental page.

Why do we have lifeguards when some other HOA pools don’t?

Most apartment and HOA pools do not have a deep end. Our pool is 9’ deep.  Also, while those associations may not have “lifeguards” on site, they DO have staff monitoring and managing the pool and participants, either directly or indirectly. The Cross Creek Homeowners Association makes safety a priority and we will have lifeguards on site when the doors to the pool are open.
