Guests at Poplar Height

Members and Renters of Poplar Height are permitted to bring guests to the Pool or Tennis Courts, so long as they are accompanied by the member at all times. Daily guest fees are $5 per person per day ($10/day on some special holidays). Guest passes are available for purchase through your online account or at the Guard’s Desk. We no longer offer physical guest passes.

Hosting more than 15 guests on one day is considered a private party and must have prior approval from the pool. Information on private parties can be found on our Private Parties page.
