SAMLARC strives to provide safe, beautiful, and enjoyable aquatic facilities for Members and their guests.​

In order to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the SAMLARC community, pool operations have been modified to reflect government requirements and recommendations. When visiting a SAMLARC Pool, please observe the standard SAMLARC Aquatic Facility Rules as well as the COVID-19 Rules. 


Please adhere to all County and State requirements regarding social distancing, use of face coverings, and hygiene. Pool deck furniture has been strategically placed to support social distancing; please do not relocate furniture. Outside furniture is not permitted.


Members are encouraged to practice water safety at the SAMLARC pools, as lifeguard services concluded on September 7, 2020.


All four (4) Pools will be heated through Sunday, September 27. Beginning Monday, September 28, Arroyo Vista and Altisima pools will remain heated and Solana and Monte Vista Pools will be permitted to warm and cool naturally.
