Winter will end and Redwood will open!
Enrollment for the Summer of 2014 is beginning now. Discount deadlines are adjusted to compensate for the late solicitation this year, and the rates for 2014 Full Season Passes are unchanged from last year. In addition, a revised Limited Use Pass is available for those who do not anticipate being able to use Redwood frequently throughout the summer. Also, we are offering a Swim Team Only Pass for our older swim team members who will be using Redwood just for the swim team practices and meets. We hope these options will better serve the extended Redwood Family. More information will be available on the Season Passes page.
The harshest winter in decades is taking its toll on our roads, but it appears Redwood will get through this winter relatively unscathed. None of us will know for certain if our homes and buildings have suffered damage until the ground thaws, but as of now there is no evidence of significant damage to the pools and buildings, thankfully. Although our winter had nothing to do with it, the same cannot be said about our local bridge that will force a detour for the summer.
The bridge over Tinker's Creek on Ravenna Road just north of the Old Mill Road intersection is scheduled to be demolished for replacement beginning in mid-May. Construction is expected to take the entire summer with reopening of the bridge likely to occur sometime in October. Because the new bridge deck will be wider and four feet higher than the existing deck, and because of the design of the old bridge, engineers determined it would be nearly impossible and exorbitantly cost prohibitive to keep one lane of the bridge open for the summer. Consequently, many of our patrons will have to take Route 91 Northbound to Route 82 Eastbound to Ravenna Road Southbound to reach Redwood. Most of you are familiar with the route of this detour, but a map will be made available soon. Obviously, this will be a significant inconvenience to all who will use Ravenna Road regularly during this construction period, but on the positive side, when completed the bridge should provide a much safer and more gentle approach to the intersection and better sight perspectives. In the meantime, we will all have to work together to minimize the inconvenience.
We are also working to update the content of this website for the 2014 Season, so expect to see more changes and please contact us if you have questions. We now are in a position to be more responsive to your questions and comments.
