The water’s in the pool, staff is ready and the deck chairs are waiting for you !
With the recent changes in state and county guidelines, the pool will open to guests at
1:00 p.m. on Friday, June 5th!
As the pool will be opening this FRIDAY! membership packets for those who have already applied for memberships can be picked up at the Recreational Facility -
Wednesday, June 3rd from 4-6 p.m.
Thursday, June 4th from 8-10 a.m. and 1-4 p.m.
The staff of the Recreational Facility has been working diligently to prepare the facility, as well as formulate policies and procedures, for as safe a summer swimming experience as we can reasonably provide. You will notice changes in seating, sanitation and concessions to enhance social distancing and have readily available disinfectants for the facility, equipment, staff and patrons.
We encourage you to come down to the pool Friday, check out the pool, 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 Ad Astra Plan), the CDC and from county and city officials. Attached here are requirements, as well as our member expectations and responsibilities. Social distancing is required. Please take some time to review this document. You will be asked to acknowledge that you have received and understand when you pick up your membership documents. If we work together, we can stay safe and healthy together as we enjoy our pool and park.
The membership packet includes guest passes for those who signed up during the early bird period (prior to April 15th), as well as a copy of the rules and regulations. As in the past, there will also be a waiver for the head of each membership to sign.
Share with your neighbors & friends how much fun there is at Rockwood!
We look forward to seeing you at the Pool!

The Park is open!

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.
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.
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.
