  1. SURVEILLANCE - Security cameras are in use at the Weatherstone Pool.
  2. ACCESS - Access is by Weatherstone-issued Key Fob only during posted Pool Hours. All other access is TRESPASSING and WILL be prosecuted.
  3. USE - The Weatherstone Pool is for use by Weatherstone residents and their accompanied guests. Each Weatherstone resident is allowed a maximum of TWO guests at any time. If you are hosting a party at the Weatherstone Pool, there must be one resident for every two guests. Residents must accompany their guests at the Weatherstone Pool at all times.

Please excuse the following projects taking place this summer at our Weatherstone Pool:

Residents and guests in violation of any laws, rules or regulations may be ticketed and prosecuted by the Douglas County Sheriff.


The Weatherstone Board of Directors has contracted with a security firm for routine pool security. When security staff is present at the pool they require residents to sign in upon arrival.  They turn away a number of non-residents each summer and are taking unauthorized fobs. 


The entire pool facility is under
24 hour recorded camera surveillance.


For all security or maintenance concerns contact the Weatherstone community manager.



Lost and Found Box - Pool Policy


The pool's lost and found box is often overflowing each week. Every Sunday, take what you want from the lost and found box for yourself or charity donation. Anything left in the box on Monday morning goes into the weekly trash.
