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!
Spring Clean Up - April 11
A large commercial dumpster will be in the RRF parking lot on the morning of April 11 from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Come early as the dumpster does fill up! Most items can be accepted except for batteries, tires, hazardous materials, fluorescent light bulbs, etc. Check out the Helpful Numbers section below for proper disposal locations for those types of items. Volunteers are needed to help the morning of the cleanup.
The Board meets the 3rd Monday of every month at the RRF patio room, 7:00 p.m. All homeowners are invited to attend. The current board cycles off at the January meeting. Please attend a meeting, contact a board member if you would like to get involved with your neighborhood. There are several open positions, including community activities coordinator. Officer Tyrrell is the officer assigned to the Rockwood area. He normally attends the monthly board meetings.

RRF Parking Lot Repairs
One more repair project at the Recreational Facility will be scheduled over the next month. The parking lot will be sealed and parking lines repainted. The dumpster will be temporarily moved as this work is done.
It may still be chilly outside, but summer is coming!
Pool membership applications are headed your way! Great News - rates are unchanged from the prior year! Even Better - get 4 free guest passes (a $20 value) when your pool application is postmarked by April 15th!
If you have not been a member before, or it's been a few years, we hope you will consider joining the Rockwood Pool this summer! Come down - take a tour - meet the pool managers and staff - check it out!
Annual Easter Egg Hunt Cancelled
At this time, Rockwood will regretfully not hold its annual Easter Egg Hunt. With everything going on, it seemed most prudent.
The Pool is closed for the winter, but the Park is open!
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. The Board has started looking at park landscaping and seating. If you have ideas or would like to volunteer to be a part of this project, please contact a board member.
The new Rockwood directory is available! The directory, which is free to Rockwood homeowners, helps keep us current on our Rockwood neighbors and Rockwood amenities and policies. The directory includes expanded information on Rockwood, the board, policies, helpful numbers, as well as a complete set of the Rockwood covenants.
If you did not receive a directory, please contact HOA Management.
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 kids - School is back in session, especially as it gets dark earlier, 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.
Check out the Rockwood Newsletter for some great tips to help increase your safety & security.
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.
