Poplar Heights Recreation Association
For almost 50 years, Poplar Heights has been a place for memories and fun in Falls Church.
Dear PHRA Shareholders and Renters:
Your PHRA Board of Directors thanks you for what has by all measures been an outstanding season. Our facility operations have gone smoothly, and we appreciate the numerous favorable comments we have received. Our new pavilion has been a welcome addition to our facility and its utilization has only grown over the summer.
As the weather begins to cool, we asked NVPools to prepare to re-start our heater for the last few weeks of the season. During their review, we discovered that during the use of the heater earlier this year, we experienced a fire inside the heater which irreparably damaged it. Unfortunately, the time needed for delivery and installation of a new unit would be beyond our already-scheduled closing and will be a significant expense (approximately $20,000).
Fairfax County Health Department regulations stipulate that we cannot operate when the water temperature in the pool falls below 70 degrees. The current water temperature is 75 degrees and, given the weather forecast, will likely fall to 70 degrees sometime this week. Therefore, we are planning to close the pool for the season on September 21 at 6:00.
Weather permitting, the pool will be open Monday through Friday this week from 3:00 until 8:00 and on Saturday from 11:00 until 8:00.
We appreciate your understanding of this unpredictable circumstance and look forward to seeing you next season.
