Recreational Area


The Recreational Area at the north end of the complex is for your enjoyment.

The Recreation Area contains a Pool Area, Tennis Court Area, and Tot Lot Play Yard. These facilities are open for use by owners of RDTA units. If a unit is rented, the owner may retain use of the facilities, or assign it to the renter - not both.

Any use of the Common Area (anywhere in the complex) by a group must have prior permission. The owner of the unit hosting the gathering will be required to add RDTA to their insurance coverage as an additional insured for the day of the event.
