About Saefern's Amenities - The Pool Area & Playground

The Pool Area - A Popular Summer Place

The Saefern swimming pool is popular with all age groups in the community for swimming, sun-bathing and socializing. The main pool is 75-feet by 24-feet, ranging from 3' to 8' in depth. An L-shaped area is provided at the deep end for diving and a separate wading pool is available for young children. Adjacent bath houses provide showers, toilets, and a covered and lighted picnic area. This area has tables and barbeque grills that are also part of the pool complex. A terrace facing Clements SSYC Pool areaCreek overlooks a well maintained, kid-friendly playground with slide and swings. There is also a basketball backboard, a hop-scotch court and a rack for bicycles. While many folks walk or bike to the pool, ample car parking is provided.

Recent enhancements at the pool area include the addition of a "hybrid" gas grill (propane ignition; charcoal fired) and the installation of solar collectors providing "free" energy for pool requirements and, when not needed for the pool, returns to the power grid.

Pool Management

The pool is managed by a local professional pool management company that is responsible for maintaining the pool in compliance with all governmental regulations and for providing qualified life guards.
