Party Rental Terms

Colman Pool is available for party rentals from 7:00-8:00PM, on the dates that will be viewable online, typically Fri/Sat/Sun and some Mondays in August. All party rentals are for 30 guests maximum. The cost is $309.25.

If your desired date has already been rented, you may place yourself on the waitlist. If there is a cancellation of your waitlisted date, we will contact waitlisted customers, in the order received.

Alcohol, recreational drugs, and smoking are prohibited. Guests who appear intoxicated will not be permitted to swim or supervise children. Food is allowed, but glass containers of any kind are prohibited.  Small sound systems are allowed, but music must not disrupt park use outside of the pool facility. There is no personal vehicle access to the beach walk or pool. Tables and chairs are available. The slide will be open upon request to those who can pass the deep-water swim test, without the use of a PFD. Children younger than 6 years of age and/or under 48” in height must be accompanied by an adult in the water at all times, within arm’s reach and eye contact.

We will cancel your rental and provide a full refund if dangerous weather conditions occur, (lightning, hail, unhealthy air quality or high winds that present a risk of falling debris). We do not offer refunds for rainy or cool weather. If you cancel with 31 or more days’ notice, we can refund you all but $82.25 of your total. If you cancel with 15- 30 days’ notice, we can refund only 50% of your total minus booking fees ($32.25). If you cancel the rental with 14 or fewer days’ notice, there are no refunds.
