2018 July 4th announcement

Prestonwood Forest Residents of all ages are invited to decorate everything (and everyone) in the ‘Red, White & Blue’ to ‘Roll and Stroll’ in the Independence Day Parade, Wednesday, July 4 – and participate in neighborhood activities after the Parade!

July 4th parade route The Parade

The Parade lineup starts at 9:40 a.m. at the corner of Ravenhurst Lane at Prestonwood Forest Drive. (People-powered entries line up along Ravenhurst to West of Prestonwood Forest Drive, motorized entries and floats to the East - watch for the Parade Starter!).

We are honored to again have the Knights of Columbus Color Guard lead the Parade with the national colors - and to host our first responders from the Precinct 4 Constable’s Office and Cypress-Creek Volunteer Fire Department ( be prepared to get wet, in the CCVFD ‘street shower’ after the Parade!)

The Independence Day Parade starts rolling at 10:00 am and ends on Glencliffe Lane at the Hancock Elementary school parking lot.

Please be sure to visit the Photo Gallery for (2) great slide shows of the 2017 Independence Day activities!

For pool access after the Parade, residents are reminded to pack their 'Recreation Access Cards', along with their swim gear - when coming to the Independence Day Activities!

  • Pool-1 – (the Clubhouse Family Pool) opens early at 10 am, until 8 pm - and will feature DJ music and lifeguard-directed activities for the children, after the Parade!
  • Pool-2 – (the ‘Other’ Family Pool) will be open from 12-noon until 7 pm and might fit the bill for those seeking more tranquility around the pool.

Recreation Access Cards
Online Recreation Access Card Request Form
Please remember that Recreation Access Cards are issued only one-time to each residence and that new cards are not re-issued each year. Previously issued cards are remotely enabled/disabled each year based on timely payment of the annual assessment dues.
Each lot (physical address within the community) is issued one (1) ‘Recreation Access Card’ , which will be assigned through the duration of residency in the community and will work year-round – pursuant to each facility’s posted hours of operation and usage policy.
Please be sure to reference the ‘Recreation Access Card’ Policy and the Pool, Tennis and Clubhouse Information pages for important facility access details.
The ‘Recreation Access Card’ is required at all times to enter and use the Pool/Tennis/Clubhouse Facilities. Residences that have not previously requested cards, may request their household’s card through the convenient Online Request Form.
Lost or stolen cards will be reissued for a fee of $10.00 payable to PFMA.
Beginning in 2016, ‘Recreation Access Card’ and proximity card readers at the pools, tennis courts and clubhouse combine the functionality of (and have replaced) the old pool tag and facility key access methods.
Important: Each access card coding is assigned to a specific Prestonwood Forest house address and all entry/exit at each facility is digitally recorded. Therefore, it is very important NOT to let anyone other than your household use your Recreation Access Card.
If you have any questions, please contact a High Sierra representative, through this website’s Contact Us feature.
