Safety Rules

  • Non-swimmers or weak swimmers (in the lifeguard’s evaluation) must stay at the shallow end of the pool.  The lifeguards may use a swim test to determine a swimmers abilities.

Supervision Required

  •  Lifeguards are not a replacement for close, active supervision of a child by their guardian.  Parents, whether or not     they are at the pool, are responsible for the safety and behavior of their children.

  • The toddler wading pool is for children ages 6 and under.  Each child must be accompanied by a responsible party over the age of 13. 

  • The lifeguard staff and management are not responsible for any loss of or theft of personal belongings. 

Pool Standards of Conduct 

  • All tobacco products, marijuana products, and vapor cigarettes are prohibited within the pool fence perimeter.  

  • Foul or abusive language is prohibited at all times, and may result in expulsion from the pool area at the discretion of the head lifeguard or management. 

  • Radios must be played at a volume and of content not offensive to others.  The lifeguards will determine acceptable volume levels. 

  • Bicycles, skateboards, blades, scooters, roller blades, heelies etc. are not permitted in the pool area.

  • Pets (service animals excepted) are not permitted inside the pool fence or within a 10’ buffer around the pool fence.  Pets may not be tethered to the fence or in any area around the recreational property. 

  • Residents shall be responsible for damage to pool property caused by their family and/or guests.

Guest Policy and Pool Parties

  • Residents may bring guests to the pool.  Guests are limited to 5 per household, per day.   All guests must be accompanied by the resident at all times.

  • Because the pool is primarily for the use of the conservatory residents, pool parties are restricted to the hours between 5 PM and 9 PM.  No pool parties are allowed on holidays or holiday weekends.  Pool parties are limited to 50 guests.

  • Reserving the pool for a pool party requires a clubhouse reservation and follows the same process as reserving the clubhouse.  A reservation must be made through Westwind Management Group:  303-369-1800 and a Facility Use Agreement with a security deposit and rental fee must be completed.  Residents will be responsible for charges associated with the need for additional lifeguards.  Please be advised that one lifeguard is required per every 25 attendees, regardless of whether or not they are planning to swim. The hourly expense per lifeguard is $25.  

Violation of pool rules could result in the offender being asked to leave the pool area for the rest of the day.  Pool privileges may be suspended for up to 48 hours by the lifeguards for infractions of pool rules, and for longer periods by the pool manager, property manager or Board of Directors.

 

ADDITIONAL RULES MAY BE IMPLEMENTED WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE AT THE DISCRETION OF THE CONSERVATORY HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION.  SUCH RULES WILL BE POSTED WITHIN

A REASONABLE TIME FRAME UPON ADOPTION.
