Committee chair Lauren Hall would also like to update the community on the pool pass system for 2018: The new board considered adopting an electronic system, but the majority voted against it for the upcoming season, stating that this board would like more time to clearly define the goals for any new system. Pool passes will be distributed in the same format and in accordance with a similar timeline/process as last year.
Landsdowne has many recreation areas. For specific questions or to provide comments, please us contact us.
Basketball Court - Do you love shooting hoops? Join fellow players on our court, located off the walking path on the west side behind Morning Ride Circle. Courts are open from dawn to dusk every day.
Community Benches and Walking Path - A 1/2 mile walking path runs the length of Landsdowne through the common area. Enjoy taking a stroll with fellow residents or with you dogs. Part of the path adjoins a wooded area. We often see while tail deer and birds of many different species. Bluebird houses will be added later this fall. If you simply wish to "get away" and enjoy being outdoors, please also take time to stop and relax on our many beautiful seating areas located strategically throughout Landsdowne. And if you want to spend time walking with others, why not start a walking group?
