Summer is just around the corner and Gulfwood Pool will soon be opening for the 2017 season! Just as Knox County Schools end the school year, the pool opens at noon on Wednesday, May 24 and will follow the following schedule until school resumes in the fall:
2017 Gulfwood Pool Summer Hours:
Monday – Thursday 12:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Friday 12:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Saturday 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Sunday 1:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
We encourage our pool families to bring guests. Guests can only enter with a member and must pay the $5 fee. Each guest is limited to five visits per season. After that, we will ask that they purchase a membership. Any guest fees they've paid can be deducted from the membership cost. This encourages our friends and neighbors to invest in the pool. However, the guest passes you will receive for the early bird special does NOT count towards these five visits. Also, any guests will be required to adhere to all pool rules, which are posted by the restrooms.
Please be prepared to show an ID when you come to the pool. You will be asked to sign in during each visit. This will help us keep track of the busier times and will help in creating the lifeguard schedule. Please be patient with our guards as they become familiar with your families.
Please check with the lifeguards to schedule a time for your older children (10 and up) to take a swim test. Children 13 and older are not required to take the test. This is required if they will be coming to the pool without an adult. Please make sure they are aware of all posted rules. If they break a rule, they will be asked to leave for the day and the parent/guardian will be contacted. If this happens on multiple occasions, your children will need to be accompanied by an adult during all visits.
Also, if you'd like to schedule a party at the pool, please contact Angie Hall (firstname.lastname@example.org or 865-474-0218) for pool availability and pricing. Usually, quotes are returned to you the same day.
And a final reminder - - the pool can now accept debit and credit cards for purchases at the concession stand, guest fees, and membership payments!
