Fall & Winter Aquatic Facilities Information


As the weather turns cooler and community members enjoy autumn and winter in the community, SAMLARC aquatic facility usage will begin to ebb. To help Members plan their visits, please note the following off-season pool and Lagoon information.


The Beach Club summer season came to an end on September 27, 2020. The Lagoon end-of-season procedures began on September 28, 2020. These procedures include draining of the Lagoon, installation of tarps to protect the sand from wind, and installation of mylar streamers to deter waterfowl from inhabiting the empty Lagoon. The Beach Club facility is open daily from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and the Beach Club Office will be open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Due to COVID-19 restrictions related to gatherings, the Fiesta Room and patio remain unavailable for reservation.


Two of SAMLARC’s four pools will be heated during the off-season, generally October through April. This year, Altisima and Arroyo Vista Pools will be heated to maintain a temperature range of 80-83 degrees. The temperature of the pools is monitored electronically to ensure temperature consistency and is regularly assessed by both Staff and maintenance vendors. Monte Vista and Solana Pools will heat and cool naturally.


For questions about the Lagoon or Pools, please contact Jerry Corpuz, Beach Club & Aquatic Facilities Manager, at 949-709-4009 or jerry.corpuz@fsresidential.com
