Gardens of Gulf Cove - Phase 1 Test Opening
The Gardens of Gulf Cove Board of Directors have decided to proceed with opening the community pools, tennis courts, pickleball, shuffleboard courts, bocce ball and one set of restrooms at the Recreation Center. The pools will be open for swimming only. There will be no lounging anywhere on the pool decks, sides of pool or sunbathing. The chairs and loungers will be removed from the pool decks to restrict social gathering and extended visits.

The Recreation Center Building and the Clubhouse (including clubhouse restrooms) will remain closed during Phase 1 test opening. These rules are subject to change at any time and the opening of these amenities can change at any given time. We do not have the sanitation supplies available to increase cleaning, we will only sanitize according to our normal schedule.

The community’s safety is always first and foremost. Many send us their opinions and we have seen the controversy between homeowners. Please be patient and be kind to one another during these difficult times. Everyone is stressed and eager to get back to normal, and to do that we must work together. The Board will continue to follow State and County guidelines. We want the community to enjoy the amenities, but we also want to provide a safe environment for everyone. The rules were carefully thought out.  Many sources of information were taken into consideration with these decisions. The Board is doing their best to keep you safe.
