Default Minimum age at Neighborhood Pools

Just curious -
I was wondering about the rationale for designating age 30 as the required age to use the Neighborhood Pools versus the Family Pools I can certainly understand restrictions for children ... and those up to age 21. My guess is that those who created the rule were concerned about wild, 20-some-year-olds causing noise and/or a disturbance at the neighborhood pools.

My nephew and niece (both in their upper 20's) recently came to visit us. I explained to them that they are only permitted access to the Family Pool because they are under 30 years old. They got a good chuckle out of that. (My nephew is a medical doctor and my niece is a neuro-scientist . . . hardly the wild type.)

Can anyone explain the rationale for allowing 14 years old to drive a golf cart (which I believe to be a pretty scary prospect), but setting age 30 as the required age to use the Neighborhood Pools?

Thanks!

Not to disappoint you but only Stephen Hawking (or maybe Janet Tutt) knows the answer!

Our grandchildren ages 22 and 25 were surprised but adjusted easily. Like me, they don't question rules much.

That's just what someone decided. So that is what we do.

'nuff said.


As for the Golf Cart driving age

- this guy was only 5, but in dog years X7 = 35 ... so legal I guess.

That is so strange, PR baby Princess, ..... I have NEVER seen anything like that here. I have read a few posts from people that I thought might be trolls. You never know.

One is constantly surprised on this site.

I'll guess on this one. Maybe the neighborhood resident pools are for the OLD people and don't want bunch of brats runnig around hollering and screaming That's what the family pools are for. But the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. Rules are for breaking anyway

I don't know. I have seen some "older" wild cats at the pools.

30 seems a little too old. I'd suggest around 21.
