Longwood Village has two pools

For pool access cards, please contact request on TownSq and we can send a HelloSign digital document.
WE SWIM | BEND POOL
At our Longwood Bend location, we offer a pool oriented to athletic swimming, party events, summer swim team, and swim-at-your-own risk (SAYOR) exercise. No lifeguards are provided at this pool location. Parent supervision of registered young swimmers is mandatory at this pool. Pool hours are available far below in slide show, and as a PDF on Resident Resources Page.
The pool typically opens in mid April for our swim team, and Memorial Day Weekend for our residents.
The pool is usually open for SAYOR swimming from dawn to dusk, except Mondays for cleaning, when the swim team practices, or when a private party is booked.
If you need a SAYOR card ($25), please request via TownSq. NOTE: Only SAYOR card holders and their registered spouse and own children may use the pool during SAYOR times. No guests allowed during SAYOR swim for any reason.
Pool parties may be booked at the Bend pool, and must include lifeguards, arranged through Lone Star Pool Management Company: email@example.com.
Please login to TownSq to request a SAYOR card.
WE SPLASH | TRACE POOL
At our Longwood Trace pool, family fun rules. Our covered kiddie pool, colorful splash pad and refreshing swimming pool provide hours of summer recreation. Why stay at home when you can come swim with friends?! Pool hours are available far below in slide show, and as a PDF on Resident Resources Page.
The TRACE pool is open with lifeguards all days excepts Tuesdays (cleaning day). See Resident Resources for pool schedule.
While our community provides lifeguards at the We Splash | Trace pool, we encourage parents and caregivers to effectively supervise and diligently watch their children while they are at the pool. Water supervision tips here. Swimmer safety is paramount in our neighborhood!!

During the spring and summer, you will find many of our children outfitted in caps, goggles, giggles and speedos, joyfully swimming for the Spring-Cypress Stingrays. Here is the 2021 schedule of NWAL events: https://scst.swimtopia.com/
TRAILS, PONDS & GAZEBOS
Longwood residents enjoy a naturally occurring pond located at the corner of Louetta and Longwood Trace. The pond is surrounded by a walking/jogging trail and a wooden bridge. The pond features a variety of wildlife, including turtles, fish, bullfrogs, cranes and an occasional duck. Fishing is allowed on a "catch-and-release" basis only. So pack a lunch and your fishing pole . . . and come enjoy the wildlife that call Longwood home.
We also have two covered gazebos in our community. Both locations are a perfect spot for morning coffee, picnic lunches, reading, sunset sips or family photos.
Enjoy our various trails through the neighborhood. Nothing could be nicer than to run or walk along our beautiful trails that meander throughout Longwood. The beautiful landscapes and trees make for a relaxing, enjoyable retreat from our hectic lives. There are also many local parks to enjoy: https://www.hcp4.net/parks/
With four courts (two courts at each park location), Longwood enjoys an active tennis community with league play in HLTA, USTA, HTA, NWTL, TJL as well as social play. New residents can contact the leagues listed above if they are interested in finding a team to join.
All requests to add any new teams need to be sent to Cindy Schluter, Tennis Court Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Courts can be reserved for league play or recreational play, but league play takes priority. All scheduled league play will be posted at both courts.
Schedules can be seen online under amenities in the TownSq app.
ABOUT OUR AMENITY CARDS
|Longwood has several "controlled" amenities: the swimming pools and the tennis courts. Access to these are provided by an amenity card. At the entrance to the WE SPLASH | TRACE pool and the tennis courts, there is a "card reader", which provides controlled, audited access. The first two access cards are issued at no charge to each residential address. Should you require replacements or a third card, they are available for $10.00 per additional card. An Amenity Registration and Indemnification Form is available in the resident portal. It requires the resident to complete and assert that they have read the associated Pool and Tennis Court Rules included with he registration form. As outlined above, access to the SAYOR pool requires the submission of registration and release paperwork and a card fee, prior to obtaining an access card.|
LONGWOOD GOLF CLUB
Many area residents enjoy the neighborhood fairways which are carved out of dense forest, making each hole secluded, distinctive and memorable. Its small, well-bunkered greens were crafted with handicap players in mind. The course's four sets of tees and generous entrances to greens provide players of all skill levels with an enjoyable challenge. Longwood Golf Club.
