Park Regulations The following rules apply in order to promote the safe enjoyment of the park for all its Members and Guests.

Care is to be used to avoid damage to all fixed and natural park property. If willful destruction occurs, the offender will be liable for the cost of the repairs.
We request that all bicycles be parked in the racks provided.

The following rules apply: A lifeguard must be on duty before entering the pool.
Obey lifeguard instructions. The lifeguards are employed to assist the Association in maintaining a safe, fun, and fair environment for all members. For the sake of safety and order, when it comes to the enforcement of regulations, a Member or Guest must defer to the judgment of the guards. Challenges and/or complaints may be lodged with the Pool Manager or the Board of Directors. Willful disregard of guard authority may result in Membership suspension or termination.
The bathhouse is available for use by all Members and Guests and is equipped with dressing room, shower, and toilet facilities.
All bathers are required to take a cleansing shower before entering the swimming pool enclosure.
All bathers shall ensure that the bathing apparel worn in the swimming pool is clean.
Any person wearing street clothes or shoes, is not permitted in the swimming pool. Access and use of the pool deck is permitted.
A person who has any of the following medical conditions is excluded from a swimming pool, except that the person may be granted use of a swimming pool upon a written determination by a personal physician or a local health officer that the condition will not affect the health of other persons using the pool:
An infectious or communicable disease.

Running or boisterous or rough play, is not permitted in a swimming pool enclosure or bathhouse.
Glass, other breakable materials, or an object or material that might create a hazardous condition or interfere with the efficient operation of the swimming pool are not permitted in a swimming pool enclosure.
A person shall be allowed to use a coast guard approved life jacket in the pool if the individual has in his or her possession a statement signed by a licensed physician stating that the individual has a physical disability or condition that necessitates the use of a life jacket. An individual assumes the risk of any injury to himself or herself caused by the use of a life jacket as provided in this section which is not otherwise caused by the Association's negligence. Upon these conditions, a person may use a life jacket in the shallow portion of the pool. No person is permitted to wear a life jacket in the deep end.
Deep water swimmers must be able to demonstrate the ability to swim the length of the pool unassisted and without a floatation device.
All designated rescue and first-aid equipment is intended for emergency use only.
No food, drink, or gum are allowed on the deck or in the water.
Diving objects, noodles, goggles/masks, and soft, spongy toys are permitted in the pool. Any others need approval of a lifeguard on duty. No toys or diving objects are allowed in the deep end.
The wading pool is for the use of children younger than eight. Children younger than eight must be supervised by a parent/guardian or person 16 years or older.
A parent or legal guardian must accompany young children while in the pool area. Further, when the child is in the water, the parent must also be in the water with the children. When the child is within the fenced area, the parent must also be in the fenced area watching the child. Safety is everyone’s responsibility and it starts with the parent or legal guardian. All untrained children must wear swimmer diapers in the pools.
No one except the NPA staff or Board Members are allowed in the pump, chemical storage, and office areas.
At the discretion of the lifeguard on duty, a 10‐minute period may be called for adult swimming only (18 years and older). All children must exit the pool completely. At the lifeguard’s discretion, children that willfully disobey this rule may be issued an extended recess from re-entering the pool.
A clearance of 4 feet should be maintained around the pool. This includes chairs, towels, coolers, and other personal affects.
A telephone is available for park business and emergency use only.
Smoking is prohibited on the pool deck, in the bathhouse and community room, and in the picnic areas. Smoking is not permitted within 20 feet of these areas or the minimum distance required by law, whichever is greater, and should not interfere with other members’ or guests’ enjoyment of the park and pool.
No pets are allowed in the pool area or in the fenced picnic area. A registered service animal is permitted in these areas, but is not allowed in the pool.
One swim lane is available and may be reserved for those who wish to swim or walk laps. Those in the lap lane who are not swimming or walking, must leave the designated lane if another person wishes to use the lap lane to swim or walk. Please use discretion when requesting use of the lap lane as this has an impact on all others using the pool. At their discretion, the lifeguard on duty may delay or deny the request during times of heavy pool use. This is to prevent crowding of the remaining pool area, and to maintain the relative safety of all bather.
Diving is only permitted in the dive well.
