Swimming

Our newly renovated pool area is a popular spot all summer long. We have a diving board, separate kiddie pool, jungle gym, swings, and 40 new chaise lounges for the sunbathers. The Pool Snack Shack serves up excellent poolside fare (hot sandwiches, hot dogs, fries, cheese balls, pop, and candy) and the adults can cool down with a beer or mixed drink from the cabana bar. On busy days there is poolside service to sunbathers and swimmers. It's a great place for families and members to congregate. The pool and all facilities our kept to our high-standard of cleanliness and the pool is supervised by competent trained lifeguards.


An Asset for Families


On summer Friday nights the parents can play in the couples twilights while the kids go to the lifeguard staffed kids pool party. It's a great way for the entire family to enjoy the evening.

The pool is a great asset for families. Our lifeguards teach swimming lessons in the summer to help your child become adept in the water. Unlike many public pools it is easy to keep and eye on your kids. When they are older Elmwood is a great spot to spend the summer. It's a great spot for a summer birthday pool party! The kids will be sure to enjoy.

Pool-Centric Events

We have a number of events centered around the pool throughout the year. There are kids and family pool parties and themed dinner nights. One notable night is the Mexican Fiesta Night, where our kitchen staff prepares a fabulous authentic Mexican dinner. The social hour preceding the dinner consists of themed appetizers and drinks enjoyed around the pool, then inside through the adjoining north porch to the ballroom for the dinner.
