The Canyon Lake community pool at the lodge is scheduled to open March 17th this year. The pool is always one of the more popular attractions during the summer and fortunately for residents it stays open for an extended season. Right now the pool area is looking spectacular. There’s a lot of new paint, the deck is clean, and the pool water is a sparkling clear blue.
The Canyon Lake pool generally closes down in November for the winter and re-opens in early March. The pool is heated for these early season openings and even though we’re getting uncharacteristically warm weather this year, the heated water helps a lot on those brisk mornings.
Our large L-shaped pool has Olympic lanes at one end and generally varies from 3′ deep to 6′ deep. There is also a separate kiddie pool for the little tykes if the main pool is too deep or they want to warm up to the big pool. There are also dressing rooms, showers, drinking fountains, handicap lift, shade areas, and vending machines for member convenience. The view of the lake makes it easy to relax and enjoy the day poolside.
The pool opens in the spring and fall at 7:00am but is reserved until 10:00am for lap swimming and water aerobics. After 10:00am, it’s open swimming for everyone. The pool is open until 9:00pm Sunday through Thursday and until 10:00pm on Friday and Saturday nights in the summer and is open until 8:00pm in the spring and fall.
