We are once again accepting new membership applications for those homeowners living in and out of Rockwood. The goal has always been to provide the excellent Rockwood pool experience our members and guests deserve. We will continue to monitor heavy pool use days and membership levels to maintain those expectations.
Reminder - pool membership prices were reduced 25% as of July 5th and will be further reduced 50% as of August 1st (please note pool hours are also reduced in August).
Thank you to all of our staff for their great work this summer!
Rockwood's Board of Directors meets the third Monday of each month in the Recreational Facility Patio Room, 7:00 p.m. All homeowners are invited, and encouraged, to attend. Social distancing rules apply.
Current projects of the board are to continue revitalization of the park area and address any concerns of the residents regarding security. The board works closely with HOA Management to review noted homeowner covenant violations and communications.
The Wichita Police Department assigns a community policing officer to the Rockwood area who provides monthly reports to the board on activities and security concerns in the Rockwood area. Officer Alli Larison has been assisting Rockwood.

Summer is in full swing at Rockwood. The pool is open, volleyball is in full swing and the park is the place to picnic and play! Watch your emails and the Rockwood website for current information.
A REMINDER - SLOW IT DOWN GOING THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD! THE SPEED LIMIT IS 30 MPH, BUT BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR KIDS ON BIKES AND NEIGHBORS WALKING! Please especially be extra cautious around the intersection of Plaza Lane and Rockwood with kids and vehicles entering and leaving the RRF parking lot.
There were two auto larcenies in Rockwood in the past month. This is preventable! Please do what you can to not be a victim - do not leave anything of value in your value - take it inside or lock it in the trunk. Lock your car! Report any suspicious people to the police - your neighbors will thank you.
Work continues on the park and common areas to help ensure they reflect our neighborhood and provide a great and safe place to play. . Have ideas? Want to help? If you have ideas to help improve the park - how it looks, plantings, seating, group activities, perhaps an expanded pickleball court, now is a great time to pass those ideas along to a board member.
Trees in the front losing branches - lots of deadwood that you're not sure will survive the next strong wind? Take action now.
Rockwood’s shady, tree-lined streets are some of the best attributes for our neighborhood, adding to the quality of life and the value of our properties.
The City of WIchita will trim those trees within the easement next to the street. But homeowners must contact the city to get on the list. You can contact the Wichita Forestry Department at 316.942.4482 or even more easily at Access.Wichita.gov or on the Wichita Reports app. This is not a quick fix - it may take several months, but save you hundreds of dollars. To encourage faster or more efficient service, get your neighbors to also get their trees on the list.
Diseases, lack of regular trimming/deadwooding can damage or destroy trees and property if not properly addressed. Insects can infect and damage whole neighborhoods of trees. Please help protect the investment in your homes and contact your arborist of choice to schedule annual spraying and to check the trees for any necessary maintenance.
The past several years the Board has worked diligently to budget and plan for updating and maintaining Rockwood investments. This year the board was able to see the completion or significant progress on multiple projects which will help protect Rockwood's investment for many years to come.
· The entire perimeter wall was repaired, power washed and painted with a lighter color, high quality acrylic paint
· Trees and bushes were trimmed back to aid in having a clean surface to paint
Rockwood Entrances (in the works)
· Updating landscaping
· Adding solar lighting

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.
