Why Should I Buy a Pass?
Buying a pass is not only convenient, access to the Lake and pool is easy. No cash or credit card is required when you arrive at the Lake or when reserving a Rec Swim time at the pool. Revenues generated from the sales of these passes financially support the District’s maintenance of Cameron Park Lake and Community Pool.
Answers to Other Frequently Asked Questions:
Question: I am a resident, why can’t I get into Cameron Park Lake for free? Don’t my taxes already pay for this amenity?
Answer: The funds received from property taxes are allocated to many different District services including Fire and Emergency services, youth and adult sports fields, and trails. An annual pass is a user fee to offset costs for maintaining the Lake and Pool, two very important community assets.
Question: Why is the kiosk only open for a few months in the summer?
Answer: Historically, the kiosk has been open late May – early September. With the new Annual Pass program, the kiosk days and hours will be expanded to more months and weekends throughout the year. It will be more advantageous for residents to be a pass holder to save on entry fees at the Lake all year.
Question: Does the money from Annual Passes only cover the cost of staffing the kiosk?
Answer: No… the revenue generated from Annual Passes and money collected daily at the kiosk is significantly higher than the cost to pay a staff member to operate the kiosk. The money is then allocated to offset maintenance costs at the Lake and the Pool.
Question: I am on a fixed income or have a financial hardship, and I can’t afford the cost of this pass – is there anything I can do?
Answer: Yes… Recreation Participant Program Grants are available to residents with a Financial hardship. The process is very easy and can be completed quickly. For full details and an application, please click here.
Question: Can I bring my dog to Cameron Park Lake or the disc golf course?
Answer: No…. Pets are not allowed at Cameron Park Lake due to the wildlife (service animals only). We have many other parks that allow pets on leash, like Gateway Park located 0.4 miles south of the lake on Cambridge road; or our off-leash dog park, Paul J. Ryan Memorial Park on Cameron Park Drive and Hacienda Drive.
Question: Does the pass include swim lessons, lap swim and exercise classes at the pool?
Answer: Pass Holders will save $2 off lap swim or Aquatic Fitness class reservations and 10% off all Special Events held at the Community Pool. Swim lessons are a separate program fee.
Question: Do I have to make reservations for Rec Swim?
Answer: Due to current COVID guidelines, residents will need to make a reservation to swim during Rec Swim.
Question: My kid just wants to play on the playground… why do I have to pay to use a playground when that is free at all other parks in the area?
Answer: Money from Annual Passes helps with overall maintenance of the Lake and you can also use your Annual Pass to swim. If you aren’t interested in the other amenities or swimming at the Pool, then we would recommend using one of our other playgrounds at Rasmussen Park, Christa McAuliffe, or Northview. Check out our website for more information and location details.
Question: Will the Swimming Lagoon at Cameron Park Lake be open this summer?
Answer: No… this feature is closed and we are in the process of designing a new water featured play area that we hope to have open by summer of 2022.
