BHL ALERT - 25 MPH - Keep Everyone Safe!

As many of you are aware, there have been increasing concerns about speeding within our Burnt Hickory Lakes neighborhood. To ensure the safety of everyone, especially our children, we kindly ask all residents to be vigilant about adhering to the speed limits.

We also request that you have a conversation with any young drivers in your household. It is crucial that they understand the importance of driving carefully and respecting our community's speed limits.

Speeding poses a serious risk to pedestrians, cyclists, and other drivers. By slowing down, we can create a safer environment for all residents and preserve the peaceful nature of our neighborhood.

Thank you for your cooperation and commitment to making Burnt Hickory Lakes a safe place to live.

Your BHL Board



BHL is thrilled that we have a lot of new kids and families utilizing our pool and we understand the hours can be somewhat confusing. Helping increase awareness of how the pool operates is ongoing and we thank you for understanding this. The photo above, posted on the pool entrance, outlines both pool hours as well as Lifeguard hours. Here's other reminders:

Please do not send your kids under 16 to the pool before lifeguards are on duty. They will be told to leave the area. All kids under 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. If your child cannot swim, you should be within arm's reach. If your kid is 12 and you feel confident they can swim, they can go to the pool WITH a lifeguard on duty, without you. Please do not send your 12 year old to the pool alone if they cannot swim the length of the pool comfortably!

ALL BHL facilities close at 10 P.M. The pool should be cleared promptly by 10:00pm. Security Cameras are in use. Friday and Saturday nights, Lifeguards leave at 10 P.M. but on weekdays they leave at 9 P.M.
Adults or kids accompanied by adults may stay until 10 P.M. No one under 16 may be at pool without an adult at this time.

The waterslide may only be accessed when a lifeguard is on deck, per county ordinance. Lifeguard hours are:

Weekdays 1 P.M. to 9 P.M.
Fridays lifeguards on duty 1 P.M. to 10 P.M.
Saturday, lifeguards on duty 12 Noon to 10 P.M.
Sunday, 1 P.M. to 9 P.M.
BHL has more lifeguard hours than any other pool in west Cobb, per a survey taken last summer. The BHL board believes safety is our first priority. It is also one of our largest budget items.

Lifeguards' main job is watching your kids. They have a ten minute break each hour and their SECONDARY duties are to empty trash, check bathrooms and straighten chairs. During busy times, these secondary duties can only happen with help from our members. PLEASE do your share by cleaning up after your party, monitoring your kids and helping to enforce our guidelines. If you don't know them, they're posted on the bulletin board by the lifeguard closet. Lysol wipes for tables, a mess in the bathroom, etc. are available through the lifeguards. Don't hesitate to ask... your assistance is appreciated! And… NO GLASS at the pool - ever!

Have Questions or concerns? Contact any BHL Board Member. See BHL website for Board contact info. You can also find the Pool Rules to download there… look for Amenities and Pool Use page.

Hoping you all have a wonderful and safe Independence Day!

Your BHL Board
