POOL

The Gunners Pond pool and tennis court are quietly tucked away from the street and nestled next to a large forest area that shadows the pool deck and tennis court in the afternoon. However that doesn't stop the pool deck from being very hot during the day, so bring sandals or flip-flops or else your bare feet will let you know just how hot it is! This is Georgia you know!

A neighborhood pool adds value to every home in a community, and our intent is to keep the pool operating at peak performance so that all Gunners Pond residents benefit from its existence.

Pool area access is gained by a key provided by the GPHA Treasurer, to paying members in good standing. DO NOT COPY THIS KEY! If you lose your key, or want to have multiple copies, please contact us first.

All GPHA communal areas, amenities, and facilities/equipment are to be used at your own risk. This includes but is not limited to the pond, recreation areas and playground equipment, pool area, and tennis court.
