Bear Creek Village, along with other Houston area neighborhood pools, is experiencing a lifeguard shortage and the above times may have to be altered occasionally as lifeguard schedules change.  Thank you for your patience.
 
If you know of anyone who is interested in becoming a lifeguard please contact Aquatic Management by emailing janet.anderson@houston-pmg.com. 
 
Please respect the lifeguards and the job they have to do to keep residents and guests safe at the pools.  When a lifeguard gives you or your child or your guest direction please abide by the directive given.  There are posted rules, these are not suggestions, they are there for good reason.
 
Resident Pool Wrist Bands will be distributed again on Thursdays only starting June 17, through July 15 from 1pm - 5pm.  A charge of $20 per household will be applied, guest wrist bands will be $5 each with a maximum of four per household.  Please bring cash for pool wrist band pick up.
