Pool Info
            Bay-O-Vista has 2 beautiful, clean, well kept, outdoor swimming pools for your convenience. The big pool is a 60 ft. x 75 ft. pool heated to 82 degrees (ideal for lap swimming) and is open year round. The big pool always has at least 5 lanes reserved for lap swimmers as well as a general play area. The big pool is approximately 5 ½ feet deep throughout which allows for lap swimming as well as walking. The small pool is a 24 ft. x 60 ft. pool heated to 88 degrees (ideal for those little swimmers) and is generally open April 1st – November 1st. The small pool is approximately 2 ½ feet deep at the shallow end and 3 ½ feet deep at the deeper end.  Lifeguards are only on duty during prime hours in the summer months. 

            Both pools are on automated digital chemical feed systems and are checked at least 5 times a day manually for your safety and sanitation.  This maintains constant chemical balance and consistent temperature levels for your enjoyment. Both pools are cleaned with an automatic pool vacuum nightly and are manually vacuumed once a week. The pool has handicap access steps and railing.

            Please ensure that you kids wear swim diapers if needed.  We have them for sale in the front office.  You may charge any Swimming Pro Shop items to your account.  In case of an AFR (Accidental Fecal Release) please notify staff as soon as possible so that we may take the proper safety precautions.  For more information on AFR please see the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention web page or download the pdf file HERE.
 
The small pool has a special added feature for the fun-loving little ones.  “Flipper” the dolphin sprays water into the small pool for the kids to play under.  Dolphin turns on automatically for kid’s enjoyment periodically.
 
Lifeguards

Please supervise your children.  Children under 14 years of age are allowed in the water only if a parent or adult guardian is present in the immediate pool deck area (even when a lifeguard is on duty).

  1. Parents are responsible for making sure their children and guests follow pool rules.  Lifeguards are present for pool safety, not to baby-sit.
  2. Bay-O-Vista will have lifeguards on duty during the prime hours of the summer months.  Having a lifeguard on duty is not guaranteed so please plan to have a responsible adult supervising all non-competitive swimmers.
