Pool Waitlist

I’m interested in joining the swimming pool, is there a waitlist?

EECA currently maintains a waitlist of roughly 20 prospective member families. Depending on attrition within the existing member base, those interested in joining the pool typically wait for less than a year. If you are an Evergreen Estates resident, you can bypass the waitlist and join immediately. Click here to join the waitlist.

Why is there a fee for joining the swimming pool waitlist?

These fees provide support for the system that manages our membership database.

If I am offered a Membership, must I accept?

You may decline; however, refusing a Membership offer will forfeit your spot on the Waitlist and you must reapply to get back on.

Pool Guests

As a member of the swimming pool, how do I bring guests to the pool?

Admission of guests, at any given time, shall be at the sole discretion of the Facilities Management.  However, in all cases, members are limited to a maximum of 25 guests on any given day, except holidays, subject to Management approval.

Guest passes can be purchased through your account as a service/product. When checking in at the pool, simply inform the front gate staff you will use a guest pass and we will remove it from your account upon entry. If you do not have any guest passes available, you can purchase at time of entry.

No Guests are permitted on peak holidays/weekends unless with the prior approval of the Manager on Duty.

All guests must be accompanied by a Member 16 years of age or older.

Pool Snack Bar

The snack bar does not accept cash, how do I pay?

The membership portal located on our website enables charges to be made to your account, where products and/or services are associated with the account to be paid at a later date. Members just need to provide their last name for EECA staff to associate a charge to an account. This feature is enabled for all members, cannot be turned off, and is the only method to purchase goods from the snack bar.

Is there an age minimum in order for goods to be purchased from the snack bar?

Based on feedback from our first weekend operational with the new system, we will ask that anyone requesting goods from the snack bar to be at least 12 years of age. This process has been implemented out of a concern of food being consumed a parent(s) did not approve.

Pavilion Rental

When can I book a reservation?

Reservations for the end of the pavilion farthest from the snack bar will be available all days of the week starting mid-June through the end of August, excluding holidays, in two time blocks: 12:00p to 3:00p and 3:30p to 6:30p. Members will be capped at one reservation per week to enable equitable access to the pavilion.

Does exclusive use of the pavilion carry a cost?

Members that make use of the reservation feature for the pavilion (the far end) will be charged $50 per reservation. This fee is to help support the added administrative labor associated with the reservation process and fund minor repairs associated with the pavilion. Fees for the pavilion rental must be paid in advance through the member’s online account, prior to the event date/time.

Additionally, the member booking the pavilion is responsible for purchasing guest passes for all non-pool members attending the event.

Please refer to the the “How do I Reserve the Pavilion” question below for specific instructions on how to pay the $50 pavilion rental fee in advance.

How do I reserve the pavilion for a [birthday] party?

At any point in time you can see your reservations by logging in to your account and by hovering over and clicking My Reservations. No other members can book the time in which you make a reservation for the far end of the pavilion. There are painted stripes on the vertical posts to note the ‘reservation area’.

If there are no reservations for the day, am I allowed to use the far end of the pavilion?

ABSOLUTELY! We are implementing this process specifically for those that wish to reserve and guarantee dedicated, covered space at the pool. If you are wondering if that part of the pavilion is open for the day, our front desk staff can let you know.

What am I allowed/not allowed to bring inside [the pool] for parties?

Our rules continue to be applicable for pavilion reservations. Feel free to bring in food and beverage as needed (no glass containers of any kind). The snack bar is available as well. Please do not bring pop-up tents for the grass area, we will request it be taken down.
