    are locals admitted free to use the pool and order from the above menu??

      Hi Barbara, unfortunately locals are required to purchase a day pass in order to gain access to the pool deck. Weekday rate is $30 and the weekend rate is $50.00 Guests must be 21 or older in order to purchase a day pass. Sorry I do not have better news for you. The pool area really is a nice place to spend some time, so it still might be worth checking out even with a day pass charge. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
