Pools & Spas

Originally developed as a tennis club, the property has three swimming pools -- West, East, and South -- shaped like tennis racquets. Each ranges in depth from three to eight feet. No diving is allowed.

The West pool is larger than the other two, serving the 60 units with South Palm Canyon addresses. The East pool serves the Via Carisma and Palo Fierro addresses, the South pool the San Jose addresses. However, any resident may use any pool.

Pursuant to Board direction, all three pools will be heated from October through April at a consistent 85 degrees.

The property's four spas are heated to 102 degrees year-round. 

Please follow these rules when using the pools and spas: 

  • Use only between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. Noise travels easily and can disturb residents.

  • No pets are permitted in pool and spa areas. This is a health department regulation.

  • No smoking is permitted in the pool and spa areas. 

  • No food or glassware is permitted.

  • Don't tamper with the pool or spa thermostats. If you suspect a problem with the water temperature, report it to management.
  • Don't remove pool furniture. Report broken furniture to management.
  • Close umbrellas before leaving. Open umbrellas can be destroyed during windstorms.

Other rules pertaining to pools and spas can be found under Rules & Regulations.

Gas Barbecue Grills

Twelve gas barbecue grills are available for residents' use at six locations around the property (see map for locations).

The grills are easy to use, with good heat and little hassle. They have electronic ignitions, but users say that a long match or handheld butane grill lighter can result in faster ignition. A brush is available at each location to clean the grill rack before and after use. Some find it more appealing to cook on their own rack, placed on top of the one that comes with the grill.

The heat labels on many of the grills have rubbed off over time, but a little experimentation will show you what the temperatures are at the various positions on the dial. And you can light only half the grill surface for cooking just a couple of hot dogs or burgers.

When finished, make sure the gas valve is fully turned off.

The second-story Clubhouse (stairs only, no elevator) contains a function room that will accommodate 40 to 50 people, a full kitchen, two pool tables, a ping-pong table, and two bathrooms. Owners may reserve it for social functions; use the Clubhouse Rental Form, and see Rules & Regulations for details. When not reserved, it can be used by any resident between the hours of 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Users will have to supply their own ping-pong and pool equipment. When leaving, be sure the lights are turned off and the door securely locked.

No smoking is permitted in the Clubhouse.

Management has installed a keyless entry system for the Clubhouse and Fitness Center. Each unit is assigned a key card for access to the Clubhouse and Fitness Center. This will allow Management to track the source of vandalism when it occurs, and to avoid having to periodically issue new keys, at great cost, to all unit owners.
