Save our Pool Toys at Heritage Hills
With the re-opening of Pool #3, the use of select pool toys at the other pools between 1-4pm has been rescinded by the Pool Committee.
We would like to highlight that the select approved pool toys are more than entertainment for the adults and kids who use our pools. Approved pool toys:
- Help the most timid children enter the pool for the first time because they have their favorite toy
- Provide social tools to help kids learn to interact, share and most importantly play with other children
- Support the more experienced children to practice diving and swimming underwater.
- Provide entertainment for the visiting grandchildren
- Noodles support the kids who are too big for the life jacket, but still honing their swimming skills.
- Noodles support the adults who need a little extra help in the pool.
We appreciate the Pool Committee adjusting the rules last year with the closure of Pool #3 to permit approved toys in all open pools between 1-4pm and we believe this change has shown a happy middle ground for all related to approved pool toys over the past two pool seasons.
We, the residents of Heritage Hills, are requesting the Board and Pool Committee reconsider their decision and permit the use of select approved pool toys at all pools between 1-4pm for the remainder of the 2015 season and form a review committee for the options for 2016.
