Rose Garden Pool Member Updates on Restrictions 2021:
On Friday, June 4, 2021, Rose Garden will lift the masking mandate for members and staff who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 (two weeks post a second injection). We are asking members who have not been vaccinated to please continue to wear a mask upon entering and exiting the facility and when speaking to our staff members.
Capacity limitations have been removed from state guidelines, so Rose Garden will also do away with ‘Sign Up to Swim’ bookings on June 4th. All members will now have access to the pool during opening hours without needing to sign up through Omnify. Members will still need to check in at the front desk for daily attendance.
Pool hours will remain 12 noon-7:00 pm on Peters Township school nights, 6/6-6/9.
Beginning on June 10 pool hours will be from 12 noon-9:00 pm.
Please note that the whistle will blow to clear the pool 15 minutes prior to closing time.
