Pool, Tennis, Gazebo
A swimming pool, gazebo, and tennis courts are among the amenities available to Windgate II residents.
Social gatherings are held throughout the year, including a community barbecue, community-wide yard sale, and "pooch paddle" for dogs on the last day of the pool season (see photos
). Some courtyards even host block parties.
A 30' x 60' pool is available for use by Windgate II and Windgate III residents and guests.
Owners must send in the pool application
by April 1 to ensure that pool passes are received before the pool opens on May 26, 2018. Pool passes are issued only to residents whose accounts are up-to-date in condo payments and not in violation of any architectural standards. Pool passes must be revalidated each year. In order to use the pool, owners must fill out an application.
Please download, print, and read the pool rules
. Residents are expected to observe all pool rules and to obey all instructions from the lifeguard. Any failure to comply with these rules shall be considered sufficient cause for barring violators from the use of the pool area. Three written violations will lead to the revocation of pool privileges for the remainder of the pool season.
Keep Pool Passes
Keep your pool passes. Next year, you will receive a new sticker to put on your plastic pool pass card. There is a replacement fee if your resident pool pass card is lost, stolen, or discarded and you need a new card for the new pool season. Also, do not discard any 1-day guest passes you purchased this year as they do not expire. You may discard this year's complimentary blue guest pass punch card, as you will receive a new punch card for the new season and the blue card will not be honored.
Residents may reserve the gazebo for a private social function by submitting an application and security deposit to Randee Coleman, FSR. The gazebo may be reserved between the hours of 10:00 am and midnight.
Noise must be minimized after 10:00 pm in accordance with Arlington County law. Consumption of alcohol is strictly prohibited. Residents must clean up after the event and leave the gazebo in its original condition. Guests attending the event should park on S. Arlington Mill Dr. and not in the Windgate parking lots.
Two tennis courts are available for residents (shared with Windgate III). You will need a key to access the courts, which you can get from FSR. A $10 refundable deposit is required to get the key and it is yours to use for as long as you live at Windgate II. If the key is lost or stolen, a $50 fee is required to get a replacement key.
Courts must be vacated at closing time (10:00 pm). Players must turn off the lights when leaving, if no one else is waiting to play. Hours when tennis courts may be used:
- Sunday -- Thursday 7:00 am to 10:00 pm
- Friday -- Saturday 7:00 am to 11:00 pm.
There are rules (in our governing documents) regarding how Court A is for unreserved use and Court B is for reserved use. In reality, not enough people use the courts to make reservations necessary. If the court is open and no one is waiting, it’s yours to play on. If you are playing and other people are waiting, be courteous and limit your use to one hour so others can enjoy the community’s property. If management gets complaints that people are not sharing the courts, then the reservation rules and strict time limits will be enforced.
