The main pool corner steps are for entering and leaving the pool. No one is permitted to sit on the steps. Access to and from the pool cannot be blocked.

The main pool is intended for the use of adults and children tall enough to stand safely in the water.

The main pool will be cleared for a 15-minute period of each hour for adult swimming only       (16 years or older) beginning 15 minutes before the hour. During adult swim, children 6 years and older who have been using the main pool may not use the wading pool. There is no adult swim at 8:45 p.m.

Children who are not toilet-trained must be accompanied by an adult at all times while in the main pool and/or wading pool. The child must wear diapers covered with securely fitted waterproof pants while in either the main pool or the wading pool to avoid fouling the water. If the water is fouled, Montgomery County Health Regulations require that the pool be closed for 30 minutes for high chlorinating.

Pool games are permitted at the discretion of the Pool Management so long as they do not create a disturbance or cause danger to others using the pool.
