Pool Information

Identification Required

All adult residents are to show a picture identification card when entering the pool area. It is our policy to ask everyone for proper identification, even if we know you. This is done to establish residency, treat everyone equally, and satisfy Fair Housing requirements. Adults, please have your ID ready when being admitted to the swimming pool. Children (or adults in certain circumstances) not having a picture ID, will be issued a pool pin by the Hethwood Aquatics Team at either pool. Pins are to be worn at all times upon entering the pool area. Initial pins are free; however, replacement pins (nonrefundable) may be purchased for $2.00.

Guests Policy

All guests must be accompanied and registered by a resident. Residents will be allowed to entertain up to three guests on any one day. Conduct of the guest is the direct responsibility of the resident. Guests are subject to the rules that apply to residents.

Guest fees are $4.00 at the pool gate. Children under 2 years are free.

Yellow Pass

Yellow discounted guest passes are $3.00 ea. and must be pre-purchased @ the Hethwood Foundation office.

Residents may purchase as many yellow passes as wanted throughout the current season.

The yellow pass is valid for one visit per one guest during the current season.

Orange Pass

Orange discounted guest passes are $3.00 ea. and must be pre-purchased @ the Hethwood Foundation office.

Allows for one resident to entertain up to 6 guests pending availability of lifeguards

This pre-purchased pass requires a designated day and pool that the resident and their guests will be attending. This allows us to evaluate staffing for a larger than average bather load at a particular pool.

If pools close early (for weather or other) then two hours of pool use is considered a completed pass-see lifeguards. If the pool is closed on the designated day (for orange pass) then the resident will be required to return to the Hethwood office for selection of another date. Passes will only be valid for the current season. No refunds will be given if passes are not used during the current season. We can not be responsible for the weather or seasonal lifeguard availability. Passes will not be accepted on July 4th & certain special events.

Pool Hours:

Huntsman Pool: 11am-6pm Daily
Briarwood Pool: 12pm-8pm Daily (w/lap swim M-F 11am-12pm and 6pm-7pm)

Town of Blacksburg Paving Project

The Town of Blacksburg will begin a major paving project within the Foxridge & Hethwood Communities this summer. The paving is expected to take place in July and August but no definite dates have been released at this time. The paving will entail milling down and repaving Tall Oaks Dr. and any Town of Blacksburg maintained roadways associated with Tall Oaks Dr. Thank you for your patience and understanding while this neighborhood enhancement takes place.
