GoodAfternoon Sun City Festival Residents,
TheRules and Regulations for Sun City Festival Community Association state the following policy: “Toys, games, and similar items are not permitted in the pool or on the pool deck at any time. Toys include, but are not limited to, water spraying devices, wading pools, balls, inflatable rings, buckets and/or tubs of any type. Association-provided and similar flotation devices are permitted. Horizontal flotation on the water surface or use of devices for accomplishing the same is not permitted. If medical conditions warrant exemptions may also be granted when the need is certified in writing by medical authority and approved by AssociationManagement. Notwithstanding these rules and regulations,
The Staff has been challenged recently by residents desiring to utilize flotation devices that result in a horizontal floating position by at least some or all of the body. It is important to note that even those devices that allow a person to sit upright, but at the same time enable one's legs to extend horizontally in the water, are not allowed. The reason horizontal flotation is not allowed in the pool is that these types of flotation devices dramatically obscure visibility in the water. In the event someone using the pool was to have difficulty in the water and go below the surface of the pool, rafts and similar horizontal flotation devices would significantly reduce the chances of anyone noticing them.
To help assist in determining appropriate flotation devices in the pool, please see the pictures below. For a general guideline, the flotation device should be no larger than 3ft x 3ft and should result in the user being in an upright position where the legs are not extended horizontally on the pool water surface. The safety of our residents who utilize the Sage Center Pool is the Staff’s first priority, and thus, they will be enforcing this policy so please make sure to bring the appropriate approved flotation devices. If you have any questions, please ask any of our team members. Thank you for your assistance in following our guidelines.
