Recreation Access Card Policy

Recreation Access Card Policy

(Please refer to the Pool, Tennis and Clubhouse Information pages
for additional facility access details and hours of operation.)

The ‘Recreation Access Card’ is Required, at all times, to Enter and Use Pool/Tennis/Clubhouse Facilities. The new access card and facility card readers combine the functionality of the annual swimming pool tags and facility access keys.

The ‘Access Card’ may be thought of as an electronic ‘key’. Each access card is uniquely encoded to a specific address and gates are programmed to operate, for each card, during posted hours of operation and rentals.

Recreation Facilities Access is available to property owners in good standing with the Prestonwood Forest Maintenance Association

  • Residents who have obtained the use of property rights from the owner(s) must present proper documentation.

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.

Lost or stolen cards will be reissued for a fee of $10.00 payable to PFMA.

Current resident/‘Recreation Access Card’ holder – must use the access card to enter facility gates. Residents must accompany guests at all times at any facility.

Swimming Pools:

  • When visiting the pool facilities, all residents must sign-in to the pool, on the lifeguard’s log, and register all accompanying guests.
  • Facility Gate access will be determined by the posted hours of operation for each facility. Lifeguards must be present in order to enter the pool area.
  • Each ‘Recreation Access Card’ will enable up to no more than twelve (12) persons to enter a pool facility, subject to the maximum safe capacity of the pool.

Please review the Swimming Pool Rules for additional age, conduct, dress code, etc. requirements.

How to Use the Recreation Access Card.

  1. Hold the ‘Recreation Access Card’ in front of the small black ‘card-reader’ box, with the RED light - that is on or near the facility gate/door.
  2. When the light, on the small black ‘card-reader’ box, turns GREEN (or remains ‘off’) the magnetic lock will be released to open the gate/door.

Important:

  1. 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.
  2. Immediately report any lost or stolen cards to High Sierra Management.
  3. Lost or stolen cards will be reissued for a fee of $10.00 payable to PFMA.

Misuse, misconduct and any violation of facility rules, as well as assessment delinquency will result in suspension of the ‘Recreation Access Card’.
