Adult Fallsmead residents in good standing are allowed to reserve the picnic area for private events or parties. Evening parties should end by midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, and by 10:00 p.m. other days. Actual pool party availability during the early season (before MCPS is out of school) and the late season (after MCPS is back in school) may differ from the availability stated in the online reservations calendar depending on the pool opening hours on a given day during those seasons. Contact the Pool Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Residents who submit requests to reserve the picnic area will be afforded priority over those residents who have not submitted such a request. Residents MUST submit a reservation request to reserve the picnic area for parties or events. Residents also MUST submit a reservation request when: a) more than 10 non-resident guests or family members will be using the pool, b) the Resident seeks to extend the pool hours beyond the scheduled hours of operation, or c) 20 or more participants will be in attendance– the number requiring dedicated lifeguards to monitor the event.
Residents are also requested to notify the pool in advance when they plan to have a large number of guests (between 5 and 10) to make sure that adequate staff are available to accommodate both their planned guests, as well as any other concurrently scheduled events.
Residents must submit requests to host events or parties at the pool AND provide payment at least 2 weeks in advance of the proposed date of the party or event. Such requests must be approved by the Pool Committee. Signed confirmation that the event has been accepted and scheduled will be available at the pool within one week of receipt. The pool manager will arrange for lifeguards. Sponsoring Residents must be present during the entire period of the event. Reservation Requests will not be approved during periods when the pool is being used for pre-approved and posted community events (include swim team meets or community parties).
Pool party requests can be submitted in three ways: 1) using the online Pool Party Request Form
here on Fallsmead.org; 2) submitting a request form via email to email@example.com; or 3) submitting a completed request form to the Fallsmead pool office. A downloadable hard copy Pool Party Reservation form can be accessed by clicking here
or can be obtained from the pool manager or assistant manager.
Events conducted during scheduled pool hours will be limited to no more than 20 participants. The fee will be $15.00 per hour. Events conducted when the pool is closed will be charged a fee of $35 per hour per lifeguard. A minimum of two lifeguards is required for any such event. Events with more than 50 attendees or with a large number of young children require three or four lifeguards – to be determined by the pool manager. The pool fee must be paid in advance by check made out to Fallsmead Homes Corporation.
Sponsoring Residents are responsible for cleaning up the pool and facility areas used during the event. Sponsoring residents will be assessed a surcharge of $35 if attending lifeguards are required to clean-up after an event.
Rain dates for pool parties may not be scheduled for consecutive days of the weekend. Parties scheduled for pool closing weekend will have no rain dates.
All pool rules are to be observed during private parties. NO GLASS IS ALLOWED.
