Take in the View: Vista Room Coming Soon to Altisima Pool



Play, connect, and dive into community living at the Vista Room – coming to SAMLARC in late spring 2022! The Board of Directors is excited to renovate a room previously used as a staff office to now create a special recreation space where Members can foster friendships, enjoy beautiful weather, and build new memories while taking in the views of the Altisima Pool and majestic Saddleback Mountains.


Designed as an indoor/outdoor multi-use recreation space, the Vista Room will serve the multi-faceted needs of our community. Families will be able to reserve the space for private gatherings, SAMLARC classes and clubs can host recurring events, and community organizations will be able to rent the space for small meetings. This space provides families with another dedicated gathering place – upholding SAMLARC’s vision for a dynamic community founded in strong relationships.


This project is possible thanks to consistent contributions to SAMLARC’s reserves. Reserve funding is a budgeting process that identifies the expected “useful life” of an asset, and over time, allocates funds for that asset’s replacement or improvement. Reserve contributions are critical to not only maintaining the functionality of an amenity (such as this year’s replacement of one Central Park slide), but also ensuring that SAMLARC’s amenities and assets remain relevant to SAMLARC Members as community needs and interests evolve.


Construction is scheduled to begin the week of November 15, 2021 and is anticipated to conclude in the late spring of 2022. The pool facility will remain closed while heavy construction is taking place, and the pool itself will reopen when initial construction phase is complete. The Board looks forward to opening the Vista Room in spring of 2022! Be sure to check SAMLARC.org/projects for updates over the coming weeks.
