Pool

The pool is closed for the season.

Summer Pool Hours

The pool opens each year near the end of May, and “officially” closes Labor Day weekend. That is the last weekend with lifeguards (although we try to remain open for Swim at Your Own Risk until the end of September – or as long as the weather is good).

Monday to Saturday: 11:00 am to 9:00 pm.
Sunday: noon to 9:00 pm
There is a lifeguard on duty during pool hours.

After school starts, there is a lifeguard on duty on Saturday and Sunday’s only through Labor Day.

After Labor Day weekend, please note the change in pool hours.

Swim At You Own Risk (SOAR) – No Lifeguard on Duty
Monday through Friday from 9 am to 8 pm.
Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 9 pm.

The most current Board approved rules dated October 10, 2007, specifically state that “during SOAR (Swim At Your Own Risk), you must be at least 19 years of age or accompanied by a parent or guardian“. Said Pool Rules can be found in the back of your Directory.

That being said, children/minors under the age of 19 MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times during Swim At Your Own Risk. Minor children are not allowed on the pool deck or in the pool without adult supervision.

Please remember that without the lifeguards during the week, it will be up to the Highland Ridge community to help keep the pool area clean. And as always, there is no glass allowed on the pool deck.

Thank you

NO GLASS OF ANY KIND CAN BE ON THE POOL DECK.  Please note that our pool is regulated by Cobb County, which stipulates in Part 22 of the Cobb and Douglas County Public Health Pool Guidelines that only NON-BREAKABLE items can be on the pool deck (pg. 33 cobbanddouglaspublichealth.com).  This is also a Highland Ridge Pool Rule, which has been voted on and approved by the membership and is Item 11 in our published rules.  Should glass break on the pool deck, the pool will need to be drained, vacuumed and refilled.  This will be at significant cost and would shut down our pool for a minimum of 4-5 days.  Should the Cobb County Health Department make a surprise inspection and glass is found on the pool deck, our pool could be shut down for the season.  For these reasons, we respectfully ask that all residents and guest keep their glass containers OUTSIDE the pool gate.  

ANY CHILD WHO IS NOT POTTY TRAINED MUST WEAR SWIM DIAPERS.  Please be respectful of the other swimmers and make sure your toddler/baby is in a swim diaper at all times when in the water.  If any fecal matter is leaked into the pool, Cobb County Public Health Guidelines mandate that the pool must be shocked and closed for 24 hours to insure there is no contamination.  

PARTIES OF 10 OR MORE MUST BE SCHEDULED WITH THE POOL CHAIR.  Please be respectful of your neighbours and schedule any social gatherings of 10 or more with the pool chair.  Any extra pool guards necessary for a larger party held at the pool during pool hours will be the responsibility of the hosting resident and must be scheduled 14 days prior to the event by going to www.swimatlanta.com.  Please, just be responsible and hire the extra lifeguard if your event will put a burden on the regularly schedule lifeguard.

The Highland Ridge Social Committee and some residents have a number of events planned for the pool this season.  Please be respectful of the fact that some of our community do not have pools at their house and like to enjoy this wonderful amenity while it is open.  The Cobb County Noise Ordinance states that between the hours of 7am – 11 pm, sound decibels cannot exceed 84 (dBC).  This Noise Ordinance can be found at http://www.mariettaga.gov/city/cityhall/code/noiseordinance and will be posted at the pool.  All events to be held at the pool will be advertised to the HOA and will end by 11:00 p.m.  At no time will the decibel level there exceed 85 (dBC).  We would ask our neighbors who do not wish to attend any HOA sponsored event at the pool be respectful of the portion of our community who do.  If there are issues, we would respectfully request that, in the spirit of neighborly harmony, you verbally request a reduction in the noise, which will again not exceed the county mandated 84 (dBC), before calling the police.  We don’t want to be know as a neighborhood that cannot play well together.  

Thank you and look forward to seeing you at the POOL!!
