7 Ways to Enjoy the Pool this Summer | Frenchman Ranch

Want to escape the Las Vegas summer sun? Take advantage of a neighborhood pool to beat the heat! Your friends and family can gather together for fun, food, local events, and more. Here are 7 ways to make the most of your local pool.

Play Games in the Pool 

Create memories with your kids by playing some iconic swimming pool games. One of our favorites is an underwater scavenger hunt. Scavenging items in the pool is an enriching activity that works both physical muscles and motor skills for your growing and developing children. 

Have you ever played Marco Polo? One person keeps their eyes closed and seeks out the other players! You can also include racing, tag, and noodle jousting during your day at the pool.

Bring a Picnic 

Make the most of your neighborhood pool by using the features it offers. Use the BBQ stations to produce a delicious summer meal. Another hack we encourage you to try is ordering delivery. Your family can enjoy the convenience of their take-out favorites while poolside because of its convenient location inside your neighborhood. 

Look for Community Events

Find the bulletin board online or onsite for local events. These events offer community outreach and make summer easy for you, your friends, and your family. You can participate in activities such as tye-dying or Margarita Monday. Attending these events brings locals together with entertainment for everyone. 

Soak Up the Sun as a Party of One

A neighborhood pool is a great rejuvenation option close to home. Research shows being around, in, or swimming beneath the water can have various positive effects on mental and physical health. Spending time alone by the pool can reduce stress while boosting your well-being and happiness.


Swimming Lessons

Does your community offer swimming lessons? Teaching children to swim is invaluable. Not only will your children develop a new skill, but they will also have fun and socialize with other neighborhood families. 

Join a Club

Clubs can also take advantage of community pools. Clubs allow children to participate in activities, socialize with peers under adult supervision, and develop relationships. For adults, a clubhouse is a great place to socialize and enjoy the company of your fellow community members.

Celebrate Poolside

Have a special event coming up? Take it to the water! Bring loved ones together at your local pool to create memories together. Everyone will have a good day soaking up the sun alongside food, games, and good company.
