Open Swim
Daily - 5:00 AM to 10:00 PM
 
Pool maintenance is performed 6:00 am - 7:00 am five times a week. Swimmers may use the pool during maintenance as Oil Out will be the only chemical added to the pool during routine maintenance.
1. NON-Resident Guest Policy: Harlan Ranch households are allowed to bring no more than four (4) guests into the pool area at any time.
You may purchase tickets for 4 additional guests (for a maximum total of 8 guests) at the Clubhouse during the week, tickets cost $2.00 per guest. All guests must be accompanied by a resident, we do not admit the general public to the pool.
If you are renting a Pool BBQ you can purchase guest tickets for a total of 20 participants (the 20 participants include residents and 4 free guests). These tickets will be tied to your four-hour BBQ rental. We do this to help prevent overcrowding at the pool.
Tickets can be used at any point during the summer after purchase. Should the pool reach capacity the pool monitors will conduct a first in first out policy with a four-hour limit.
