Rockwood community - We are happy to announce that the Rockwood managers and Board have finalized the schedule for the remaining weeks of the summer session.
STANDARD HOURS - AUGUST 1 - SUNDAY, AUGUST 16th***
(Mon - Sun 12-9, 12-1 reserved for adult swim).
***PLEASE NOTE: POOL IS CLOSED AUGUST 7TH. Because of a shortage of staff due to college transitions and end-of-summer trips, we will be unable to open the pool that day. To open with such a short staff poses too great of a safety issue to our Rockwood community. But, aside from that day off, please enjoy standard hours for the next two weeks!
BEGINNING MONDAY, AUGUST 17TH - After that, beginning Monday, August 17, we will adjust our hours because that week staff members are beginning school, school activities, and sports. Those hours are posted below. Please know that we understand the inconvenience this poses to many families in our community; however, many of the guards on staff return to school and will be unable to work. We hope that the weekend hours still allow your family to enjoy the pool, while also allowing the staff to focus on their studies.
Monday, August 17 - Sunday, August 30
M, T, W, T: Closed
F: 4-9 (no adult swim)
Sat: 12-9 (12-1 adult swim)
Sun: 12-8 (12-1 adult swim)

Thank you for understanding! We’re excited for the rest of this summer! Please don’t hesitate to contact Evan or Joe with any questions about this schedule.
We encourage you to come down to the pool anytime, meet the co-managers, Joe Hutchinson and Evan Black, tour the facility and see the effort that has been made to make this a great summer for Rockwood.
Please note: To help keep this summer fun and safe, Rockwood continues to require adherence to the phased-in guidance from the State of Kansas, the CDC and from county and city officials. Here are Requirements, as well as member expectations and responsibilities. Social distancing is required. If we work together, we can stay safe and healthy together as we enjoy our pool and park.
Share with your neighbors and friends how much fun there is at Rockwood!
We look forward to seeing you at the Pool!
The Rockwood Board of Directors welcomes your involvement in helping keep Rockwood a great place to live. There are several open positions, including treasurer, community activities coordinator and at-large, that could be filled immediately. Please attend a meeting or contact a board member if you would like to get involved with your neighborhood.
The Board has started looking at park landscaping and seating. The picnic table has been power washed and painted. The pickleball net is up - rackets and balls are available in the RRF office. If you have ideas or would like to volunteer to be a part of this project, please contact a board member.
The Board meets the 3rd Monday of every month at the RRF patio room, 7:00 p.m. All homeowners are invited to attend. Social distancing rules apply. Officer Tyrrell is the officer assigned to the Rockwood area. He provides monthly reports to the board.
Please slow it down & watch for people walking and riding bikes. School is out of session, kids are out on their bikes and people out walking, especially around the RRF!! Walkers - Please wear light colored , even reflective, clothing to be more visible to traffic.
Whether you are a long-time homeowner, or just moving into the area, here you can get acquainted with the community, check out what's going on in the neighborhood and the perks of our recreational facility/pool.
With over 300 homeowner members, we are a covenant community, with a board or directors, managed with the assistance of a local management company.
We look forward to visiting with you at a Rockwood event or at the pool!
The Park is open!
The volleyball nets are up, the park is mowed and trimmed and the pickleball court is just waiting on you.
Please have a great time, be safe, but help us keep the park in great shape by picking up trash, cleaning up after your pets (waste bags provided at the gate) and immediately notify a board member to report any damage or needed repairs.

See Something? Say Something! Please pay attention to what is going on in your neighborhood. If it doesn't look right, it probably isn't. If you see anything that looks suspicious or out of the norm, please call 911.
Vehicle vandalism and theft is one of the most popular crimes in the City, even in Rockwood! Please do not leave ANY items in your vehicle and lock all the doors. Do not give anyone any enticement to break into your car.
Officers would much rather check out a report and find everything's okay than later dealing with a possibly avoidable risk to a neighbor or their property. This is important at all times, but especially during this time of the year.
For non-emergency reports or questions, please contact the Wichita Police Department Community Policing Desk at 316.350.3420. Officer Ryan Tyrell is our community policing officer. His email address is RTyrell@wichita.gov.

IMPORTANT: The dumpster in the Recreational Facility parking lot is available for your use if space is available in the dumpster. PLEASE, if you take items to the dumpster, and it is full, DO NOT place items on top of or on the ground around the dumpster. The dumpster is emptied three times per week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday; please just wait until it has been emptied. Please, ask your contractors to dispose of refuse properly, NOT in the RRF dumpster. Your neighbors, not trash service personnel, are the ones cleaning up the area.
Please email the Association in order to receive email alerts, notice of neighborhood activities and newsletters. Your email is never shared.
