Oakleigh Forest is fortunate to have our own community pool! Pool membership is paid annually, with information packets being delivered to all the Oakleigh Forest homes in April.
Our pool is a popular meeting place for family fun including swim meets, community pool parties, special holiday events, basketball games, ping-pong tournaments, and Saturday night cook-outs! Going to the pool on a hot summer evening to hang out with your neighbors and friends and enjoy a cool dip is one of the pleasures of living here. You are invited to join in on the fun and friendship - become an Oakleigh Forest Pool member!

IF YOU HEAR IT, CLEAR IT, IF YOU SEE IT, FLEE IT
This is what our lifeguards are required to do - clear the pool if they hear thunder, and vacate the premises/seek shelter if they see lightning. Please help them honor their training and continue to do their best to keep us safe.
