Manager’s Message

Santa Rosa


Jane Nieman, Manager

Our community has been severely impacted by the fires. Many of you, our members and staff, have lost your homes. This is a devastating time as we process how to put our lives back together. We are certainly grateful that so many of you and your families are safe, though we are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our dear members, Dan Southard, who passed away in this tragic event. Parkpoint is committed to doing all we can to support our staff and community through this challenging time.

Our club hours and some services were reduced over the last few weeks due to staff availability, power and gas outage, and equipment failure. We are now up and running, and it has been good to see so many of you at the club. I think it is important that we all continue to do those things that bring us comfort. Spend time with friends, exercise, take a hot bath or shower, meditate, or maybe take a nap. Do things that feel good to you!

During the month of November, you can help us raise funds for the Sonoma County rebuild efforts with our annual Fit ‘n FUNdraiser where “the more YOU work out, the more Parkpoint donates.” This year, all money raised will benefit local community efforts.

Last but certainly not least, we want to express our gratitude to all the first responders, firefighters, police officers, and volunteers for coming together and working to save our community. Additionally, as horrific as the fires have been, it has been heartwarming to see the love and support demonstrated time and again by people helping people in their time of need.

Take care,

Etiquette Reminders

For the health and enjoyment of all of our members, when visiting the club, please remember to follow the courtesy guidelines listed below:

Swimming: All lap swimmers need to be prepared to graciously share a lane regardless if being used for lap swimming, water walking, or kick boarding. Sharing a lane is required during busy times when the pool is impacted.

During Family Swim Time, we ask lap swimmers to yield to families enjoying recreation time in the pool. Click here for details.

Fitness Floor:

  • Please observe the 30-minute rule on cardio equipment
  • Wipe down your machine with the supplied gym wipes after use
  • When performing multiple sets on weight equipment, allow other members to work in
  • Please be courteous and ask members working out in the immediate area if it is okay before turning the fans on

Cell Phone Use: Cell phones may be used in the lobby, front patio, and quietly by the pool side. Please be mindful of other members’ experience. Parkpoint is an oasis from the stresses of daily life, and using electronic devices in the locker rooms, wet areas, studios, and fitness areas are not allowed.

Thank you for your cooperation.
