  • New pins are issued annually; a replacement pin is $2.00 and in non-refundable.
  • Pool pins must be worn on the bathing suit when at the pool.

Guests &Passes

All guest must be accompanied and registered by a resident. Residents will be allowed to entertain up to three guests on any one day. Conduct of the guest is the direct responsibility of the resident. Guests are subject to the rules that apply to the residents. Guest fees are $4.00 at the pool gate. See $3 discount pass information below. Children ages 2 and under are free.

Yellow Passes

Yellow discounted guest passes are $3.00 each and must be pre-purchased at the Hethwood Foundation office. Residents may purchase as many yellow passes as wanted throughout the current season. The yellow pass is valid for one visit per one guest during the current season.

Orange Passes

Orange discounted guest passes are $3.00 each and must be pre-purchased at the Hethwood Foundation office. Allows for one resident to entertain up to 6 guests pending availability of lifeguards. This pre-purchased pass requires a designated day and pool that the resident and their guests will be attending. This allows us to evaluate staffing for a larger than average bather load at a particular pool. These passes will be limited when our lifeguards return to school/college.
