This active community has two pools, three playscapes, community center, basketball court, and a hike & bike trail. In addition, it has direct access to the Cedar Park hike & bike trail system.
The two swimming offer different experiences. Pool 1 is located at the southern part of the property, and is a junior-olympic sized pool. Pool 2 is located in the north-western part of the property, and has a beach-type walk-in and water slide.
Both pool locations have covered seating with tables, restrooms with changing tables, Lifeguards or Pool Monitors on duty during peak hours, and a nearby playscape. Pool 2 is co-located with the community center. Pool 1 has a nearby basketball court.
Both pools require access via the OpenPath app or key fob for entry. Please contact SpectrumAm if you don’t have access. In addition, each household will need to submit a Pool Waiver form that can be completed through the SpectrumAm portal (renters will need to work with their property management / owner for waiver and access). The Association expects all members and guests to abide by the pool rules. Failure to do so will result in a suspension of access for the remainder of the pool season or an amount determined by the board.
