Reminder:  Pool anti-wave lane dividers are not designed to support the weight of a swimmer!  Aquatics Maintenance Staff have repaired the lane dividers at West Center seven times since April of 2019, most recently on December 4th.  Please do not climb on or over the lane dividers or allow children to play on them.  There is a limited number of times a lane divider can be repaired before it has to be replaced and then it must be replaced at a substantial cost to GVR.

Please observe caution tape on or around a pool or spa and do not remove it or enter the water.  Only authorized GVR staff members are allowed to remove caution tape and reopen a pool or spa.  Conditions may exist, such as chemicals being out of balance in the pool/spa, that may be dangerous to the health of bathers

Please do not attempt to adjust the spa jet nozzles. The jet nozzles in the spas are not adjustable. If the jets are tampered with it will cause the jet system to be out of balance. This reduces the force of water coming out of all jets in the system.
