Daniel Island Community Pools Summer Staffing
Beginning Saturday, May 25th – Lifeguards will be staffed at the Scott Park and Pierce Park Pools, Thursday – Sunday from 9 AM – 7 PM. Gate Attendants will be staffed at the Scott Park and Pierce Park Pools Monday – Wednesday from 10 AM – 6 PM and at the Edgefield Park Pool Monday – Sunday from 10 AM – 6 PM. Edgefield Park Pool will not have lifeguards. All pool staff members are employees of Sweetwater Pools, the Daniel Island POA Pool Contractor. Although pool staff are not direct employees of the DIPOA, residents are encouraged to notify the POA at (843) 971-9200 if they have any issues with pool staff.
Please note: In addition to the normal staffing days and times, Lifeguards will be staffed at the Pierce Park and Scott Park Pool for the Memorial Day Holiday on Monday, May 27th.
Please note: Gate attendant duties will be to greet residents and guests as well as keep a watchful eye on the pool. They cannot and will not perform lifesaving rescues. Lifeguards nor gate attendants are meant to be babysitters. Ultimately, it is the parent’s responsibility to look after their child. Gate attendants will have the authority to let residents know when they are breaking the rules. Residents are encouraged to notify lifeguards or gate attendants on duty if they see any infractions so they can notify POA staff if immediate response is needed.
There are emergency phones at both pools for residents to use if a safety emergency occurs. This phone is located in the breezeway of each pool. If an emergency arises and you need EMS or Police, please pick up this phone and press the button. You will be automatically connected to emergency personnel. The address for each pool is located above the phone for easy access.
Please know that we take the security and safety of our amenities very seriously and encourage you to let us know if you are seeing any dangerous behavior at any of our Daniel Island amenities. The pools are checked multiple times a day by our staff as well as our pool contractor.
Please note that if pool rules are not followed on a consistent basis, the privilege may be suspended.
We hope that property owners will have a safe and fun summer using the community pools in a responsible manner.
