The Decoverly Community Association pool is located at 10000 Vanderbilt Circle. It is open during season to all residents of member associations. Passes are required.
Decoverly Pool Will Close for the Season At 7pm On Friday August 19
On Tuesday August 16th RSV Pools, Inc. informed us that they “will not be able to keep Decoverly open after Friday” August 19th.
They stated that the decision was “due to the shortage of qualified and capable lifeguards that are willing to do a proper day’s work“.
Since we received the notice, we have explored all available alternatives to operate the pool for all or some of the remaining 17 days and have found no workable options.
We regret that we all face this situation and will continue to work to avoid it in the future.
