Pool Reservations for Parkwood Community Club
We get to swim again, but it will look different. You must sign up for a slot 24 hours before you plan on swimming. Watch your email or check our PCC Facbook page for a new Sign Up Genius link each week. There will only be 4 slots available per hour. Families with more than 4 people in one household may reserve the entire pool as long as all 4 slots during that hour are available. Ortherwise we are limited to 4 people in the building at a time excluding the volunteer or staff. NO GUESTS ARE ALLOWED AT THIS TIME! Please read the Member Letter, Covid-19 Waiver & Comprehensive COVID-19 Plan before making reservations. Your patience is greatly appreciated during this time. If you have any questions or issues signing up please contact Gypsie Gitane at 206-406-8035 or via email.
Check back frequently on Sign Up Genius as spots open up during the week. More volunteers are signing up, and we have been adding more reservations spots. Please check the entire list of spots as new ones are added at the bottom.
Note: If your phone/browser does not accept cookies, you may not see the more button to list all of the times available on the calendar so use a computer or another browser.We are still looking for more volunteers to take a 2 or 4-hour shift and sanitize after each use of the shower and frequently touched surfaces. For more details please contact Gypsie Gitane at 206-406-8035 or via email.
We are not offering water aerobics or swim lessons at this time, but we will be reevaluating as the situation changes.
Our club finances are extremely low due to decreasing membership. If you have not prepaid for the year, please consider prepaying as our financial reserves are gone.
Our pump failed the week before we reopened and was replaced with our backup pump. This means we will be operating without a backup pump until we have reserve funds to refurbish the failed pump. Donations of any amount would be greatly appreciated for ongoing club expenses or any unexpected repairs. Thank you to those that have already sent in gifts!
Parkwood Community Club Board
Parkwood pool is a family size pool. It is only five feet deep at the deepest end and three feet at the shallow end. It is about 1/2 the length of a regulation pool. We have installed up-to-date water purification and filtering systems. The pool is regularly inspected by the state and passes all tests and standards with very high marks. The temperature is kept at approximately 87 degrees Fahrenheit.
Except for aerobic sessions and special community events as approved by the Board of Trustees, the use of the pool is limited to only PCC members and their guests. Members and guests must sign in whenever they are on the pool deck or in the pool in order to activate our liability insurance.
Guests are anyone not listed on the Membership Agreement. Every guest must pay $2.00 (through March 31, 2020) or $3.00 (starting April 1, 2020), which is a very reasonable fee for access to the pool. There is a limit of 6 guests per paying membership per visit.
All pool users must rinse their hair before entering the pool, no matter what length. This helps us keep our pool chemicals balanced.
Pool hours are 5:00am - 8:45pm.
Pool closures will be posted on the website and scheduled in advance. We typically close for several weeks each May depending on how much work needs to be completed (currently scheduled for May 17-31, 2020). Unscheduled pool or hall closures due to emergent conditions will be posted on the website and at the pool entrance.
The PCC pool is very well maintained, kept clean, and safe for community use. We make the pool available to local Boy Scouts and Fire Fighters with prior Board approval.
Members may rent the pool for private parties for 2-hours during approved hours (before 6:00 PM) for $40.00 (for pool rental contracts signed by March 31st, 2020) or $60.00 (for pool rental contacts signed on April 1st, 2020 or beyond).
