Ready for Summer? Prepare for Changes at The Pool in 2022

Grange Waterslide

It’s hard to believe that we’re beginning to map out the summer activities. Didn’t it snow this week? One of the best ways to keep your kids busy during the summer days is to take them to one of our beloved pools at The Grange and Taft House. However, you have to prepare for a few changes at the pools this year.

THE TAFT HOUSE POOL IS CLOSED 

Unfortunately, the fun at The Taft House will have to hold off until further notice. The Taft House Pool will be closed for repairs this summer. 

Jump in The Grange Pool on Saturday, May 28th

Even though the Taft House is closed we look forward to spending many afternoons at The Grange. The pools will be open regularly from Saturday, May 28th through Monday, September 5th.  If you’ve lived here for a while, you understand how popular the pool is in the summer. With The Taft House closed, you can expect The Grange to be even more popular than before. However, to ease any concerns about capacity, there will be a few changes to The Grange Pool schedule this summer. 

Safety Break Changes

Safety breaks are a big part of the summer schedule if you frequent the pool. However, things will be a bit different this year to help make the pools at The Grange more available for everyone. Rather than having a “Safety Break” for 15 minutes each hour, Safety breaks will only happen at 12 pm, 2 pm, 4 pm, and 6 pm. Hopefully, it will make things a little less crowded. 

Lap Swimming Changes 

There’s good news for all of you lap swimmers reading this. You can now get your laps in seven days a week from 8 am – 9:30 am. 

Limited Access in 2022

Unfortunately, because our community has grown and there are capacity limits to The Grange Pool, only Meadows Neighborhood Company (MNC) residents have access to the pool in 2022. Meadows Community Association (MCA) and MNC Apartment Complex passes are not available this year. 

Guest Pass Changes 

Rather than having access to 8 guest passes per day. This year, residents will only have four guest passes per day. 

How to Get a Key Fob: 

If you’ve lived in the community for a while, you’ll continue to use your key fob to enter the pools. However, if you want to update your child’s picture, you can do that at The Grange. If you’ve moved here over the winter, welcome; the pools are free for residents. Here’s how you can access the pool and enjoy a summer of fun.

You can visit meadowslink to download your registration for a key fob. Then load up everyone in the family and get to The Grange during regular business hours to get your picture and key fob. 

THE GRANGE EXTENDED OFFICE HOURS:

Since we’ll all be excited to get to the pool this year, you can visit the office during their extended hours. 

Monday, May 23, 5-8 pm

Wednesday, May 25, 5-8 pm

Friday, May 27, 5-8 pm

Despite not having The Taft House and changes to The Grange, I am genuinely looking forward to a fun summer at the pool in The Meadows. Visit Meadowslink.com for info on the changes and pool rules. Keep an eye on The Meadows Facebook Page for updates.
