|The pool at Silveridge is classified as a “commercial pool” and thus subject to safety regulations, including one that dictates pool color: it must be white with color on the steps to increase their visibility. So the new surface will be white, but the new surface will add texture and will be less porous and thus less likely to stain or be degraded by pool chemicals.
THE NEW OASIS
There’s one area of the park that has struck many residents as underutilized and, let’s face it, not particularly attractive: the horseshoe pits. As George told us, “We keep it as nice as we can, but the boards get shabby and it’s a lot of concrete, gravel and sand – it’s just not a good fit for that prime location between the pool and pickleball. So we’re going to create a beautiful new patio area, using pavers along with planters for flowers, and then we’ll add tables and chairs.
And, while George isn’t ready to announce it yet, he’s working with new Activities Director, Lu Way, to bring a lively new use to the new area. We’ll pass along that announcement before next season.
