2023 GFC Pool Rules

The following rules are to assure the safe and sanitary operation of the pool facilities. The pool rules apply to all members and guests and all must abide by these rules at all times. Failure to comply will result in loss of privileges. The lifeguards and the Glen Forest Community Association Board of Directors have the right to exclude violators from participating in member activities including the use of facilities.
