Recreational Facility Update

We are sad to announce that the two outdoor seasonal pools, the Main Pool and Quiet Pool, will not open for the 2020 season due to COVID-19.

We are re-opening facilities according to Governor Inslee’s “Safe Start” phased approached plan. Whatcom County is within Phase 2 of the plan, which allows for a maximum of 5 persons to congregate outside of a household.

It was our hope to re-open the Pools at the start of Phase 3, however on July 28th WA State indefinitely suspended county’s progression into subsequent Phases. The outdoor seasonal pools are typically open from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend.

On the same day WA State also reduced the maximum number of persons allowed to congregate outside of a household from 50 to 10.

We continue to evaluate the viability of re-opening of the Community Center. However, under new WA State released guidelines for their Safe Start Plan the maximum capacity of Fitness Centers in Phase 3 will be reduced to 25%, and all indoor recreational centers are prohibited from re-opening.

Under current requirements and for the health, safety, and welfare of our Community we will not re-open the Community Center with such limitations. We plan to re-open the gym when the health restrictions allow for more people to be served. 

Our Parks, Trails, Marina, and Golf Course remain open to our Membership with social distancing and mask requirements in place. We encourage our Members to get outside and take advantage of this beautiful summertime weather we all look forward to every year.

We will continue to provide frequent updates. We thank our Membership for their understanding and willingness to protect one another by following WA State requirements.
