Legacy Park Court Maintenance - Legacy Park tennis and basketball courts will be closed for maintenance through Wednesday, June 27th. This schedule is weather dependent. Courts will be repaired, resurfaced, and color coated. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this process.

Sand Volleyball Court - The Association will begin construction on a sand volleyball court in Legacy Park just east of the tennis courts. Work will begin in late June and should be completed by mid-July. This project includes leveling of the existing site, installation of the court with wood borders and 160 tons of white sand, drainage, landscaping, and site amenities. Questions pertaining to this project can be emailed to CIP@brambleton.org.

Brambleton Pools - Summer is here at Brambleton's pools! Find all of the pool information you need, including pool hours and pool pass registration details, at www.brambletonhoa.com/pools.

Pool Access - Residents are reminded that they need to show a current Brambleton Pool Pass to gain access to all BCA pools. In the rare occurrence that a pass is forgotten, lifeguards can look up individuals in the BCA system. However, this should not become standard practice as it slows down the check-in process. Individuals without passes who are also not in the system will be denied access to the pools, or they will be required to use the guest pass of an accompanying resident.
