Ladera Ranch Maintenance Corporation (LARMAC) reopened pools, plunges and splash pads.
During the June 10 executive meeting of the LARMAC Board of Directors, the five-member Board voted unanimously to reopen aquatic facilities upon approval from the Orange County Health Care Agency. Supervisor Chair Michelle Steel announced Thursday afternoon that pools may open beginning Friday, June 12.
Temporary Restrictions for Pool-use
LARMAC reopened four (4) of the clubhouse pools at three (3) locations, two (2) splash pads, one (1) wader pool and seven (7) plunge pools (at six locations) with temporary restrictions that include reduced occupancy, social distancing, and the removal of pool furniture. Residents will be able to bring their own beach chairs to use while at the pool.
The Oak Knoll Village Clubhouse Lap Pool will be available for lap swim only – initially on a first-come, first-serve basis. Starting the week of Monday, June 15, a swim lane reservation system will be available for residents who wish to swim laps. Reservations for one 60-minute session per day may be made on LaderaLife.com.
Update on Avendale Village Clubhouse Pool, Water Park and Flintridge Village Clubhouse Spa
The Avendale Village Clubhouse pools and splash pad, as well as the Terramor Aquatic Park (aka Red Bucket Park) will remain closed as crews work to complete construction and equipment replacement projects that are in progress and were delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions. These facilities will reopen as soon as the projects are completed. Additionally, the spa located at the Flintridge Village Clubhouse will remain closed until the state and/or county allow for the opening of spas.
Joe Ribotto, LARMAC president said, “The LARMAC Board is pleased with the County Health Care Agency Director’s decision to reopen Orange County pools and the guidance needed to safely relax some facility closures and offer residents more options for safe outdoor recreation.
We have heard and empathize with our residents who are eager to get back in the water, and especially those who rely on lap swimming as their primary activity for exercise, physical therapy and/or their mental health. We have worked hard on behalf of those residents to prepare the opening of lap pools in a way that meets safety standards and prioritizes the health of all residents.”

Ribotto said that the Board is optimistic that it will be able to re-open playgrounds soon. Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the U.S., the LARMAC Board has increased the frequency of their meetings to closely monitor the frequent updates from the state and local county levels. As residents, board members are eager to reopen all facilities as soon as it is safe to do so, following all safety guidelines and governmental directives.
NOTE: Help keep Ladera Ranch pools open – please ensure that all infants and toddlers who are not yet potty trained wear swim pants/water-proof, sealed diapers. LARMAC provides swim pants, free of charge at clubhouse pools.
