Enjoy a Day of Swimming

Looking for a way to spend an evening and cool off? Head down to our Kansas City, MO apartment community swimming pool for a dip in the water and to enjoy the nice evening weather! In this week’s The Retreat at Tiffany Woods Blog, we’ve compiled a few ways for you to better enjoy your time at our pool!


Follow basic pool rules.

It’s not wise to run in pool areas for a reason: slippery surfaces lead to slips, which bring on the bumps, bruises, scrapes, and other, even worse, side effects. Rinse off before you head into the pool to prevent adding dirt and grime to the water that everyone is sharing. Wear appropriate swimwear so your everyday clothes don’t get ruined or caught in drains and outlets. Read and follow any posted rules and always take plenty of restroom breaks.


Don’t swim alone.

Accidents can happen with even the most experienced swimmers, so have a friend with you — Being with someone can help prevent injury and keep you from drowning. The buddy system works for many things, even swimming! Swimming alone isn’t as fun as spending it with a friend anyway!


Be mindful of others.

The pool is for everyone in our apartment community to use, so let others use it as they please and give them the space to do so safely and comfortably. Communicate respectfully with others, give them physical space, keep splashing to a minimum when you’re near others, and walk around the area. If you intend on playing physical games, keep a safe distance from anyone who isn’t participating. Safety is a job for everyone. We want our residents to enjoy the amenities that we have without any issue!
