Walnut Country offers three heated pools and one heated kiddie pool (at the Main Pool) for the use of its residents. Pool availability dates and times are subject to change without notice.
To use the Main and Side Pools you must have a pool key fob and your CHOA badge. All swimmers swim at their own risk. No swimmers under 14 years old may swim without adult supervision. No lifeguards are on duty at any pool unless otherwise noted.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT BADGES
Since the Clubhouse is currently closed, new resident badges and guest passes are not available for pickup. As a result, we are not currently enforcing badges or requiring badges/guest passes at this time.
When the Clubhouse reopens, we will make an announcement letting everyone know when badge enforcement will resume.
Key fobs are still required for entry. Please contact the Business Office if your key fob is not working or if you need a new or replacement key fob at 925-687-9961.
