PAVILION RENTALS FOR PRIVATE FUNCTIONS
Starting on Super Sunday (May 22, 2022), half of the pavilion area can be reserved for a two-hour block by SRA members for private parties during normal pool hours. The pool will not be closed to other members during your party. Like always, the grills can be used on a first come, first serve basis. No helium balloons inside the pavilion, as a run-away balloon got caught in the fan in 2021 and damaged its motor (a $1,800 fan).
Cost to reserve the space is $50 (non-refundable). The host will be expected to have enough guest tickets in their MemberSplash account to cover entrance to the facility for non-members of their party. Members are responsible for their guests following the rules & regulations of SRA at all times. Requests for pavilion rental with an expected attendance of a certain size (25+ people) requires pre-approval by the SRA Board, as to ensure adequate life guard staff will be scheduled. Requests are typically responded to within one week of the application being submitted. NOTE: Please be sure to check your spam, promotions, and other email folders for an email from "SRA-Office@StratfordRec.org" as this is how you will receive confirmation (many have noted how these emails inadvertently end up in these folders).
