4th of July Celebration

Sungate celebrates Independence Day with the long-running tradition of bike decorating contest and neighborhood parade, followed by a full day of pool activities.

The bike/wagon decorating contest lineup starts at 9 a.m. followed by a fire engine led parade at 9:30 a.m. Tour the fire engine and talk with firefighters while you want for the pool to open at 10 a.m.

Skip the line!  While some pool chairs are still first come, first serve, a portion of the chairs can be reserved for $5 each. Chair reservations are filling up fast, visit the pool office to reserve your chair today. Or just bring your own! 

Enjoy pool races and games throughout the day, as well as delicious food special including hot dogs, grilled corn on the cob, cotton candy and more. Plus enjoy free watermelon served by the Sungate Neighbors Inc board of directors.

Food tickets must be purchased at the front gate for specialty food items. Remember to bring small bills to help staff make change quickly.

The pool closes at 5 p.m. so your family can enjoy area firework displays. Bring your family and friends and join us for a day of pool activities, good food, and tons of fun.

A Change to Pool Hours: The pool will be open Monday, July 3, from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. but will be closed on Wednesday, July 5 for maintenance and cleaning.

Big Changes Coming

There is something big coming to the Sungate Pool. Literally, it’s big. The aging slides aren’t serving their purpose anymore so the board decided to purchase a new slide.

Sungate Neighbors Inc. believes that reinvesting funds into the pool to provide a great experience for its members is the best way to ensure our investment lasts long into the future.

The slide will be two shades of blue and stand about as tall as the high dive.

The new slide will replace the larger of the two slides we currently have.

The slide should be here late June. We will try to remove the old slide and install the new one with minimal disruption.

Swimming Lessons at the Pool

The Sugate Pool offers group swimming lessons, and private lessons upon request.

A certified American Red Cross Instructor teaches all lessons and lessons are held at the Sungate Pool.

Group lessons for advanced swimmers will be 8:45 – 9:15 a.m. and lessons for beginners will be 9:25 – 9:55 a.m. during three sessions: June 13, 14, 15, 16; June 20, 21, 22, 23; or July 11, 12, 13, 14.

The cost for one session (4 lessons) is $60.00. Or sign up for two sessions (8 lessons) for only $110.00.

Swim instructor and pool manager, Amanda Graff is also offering Dive & Stroke Advancement Class on
June 27, 28, 29 for $40.

Sungate Association Dues Increased

Sungate homeowner’s association fees are due. The Sungate Neighbors Inc. board voted to change the fees for the homeowners association. The dues have not been raised in more than five years. The board voted to raise the dues by $10 to $88 per year, or $7.30 per month.

The board felt this was necessary, as our costs to mow, care for the trees and wall have gone up in the recent years. SNI president, Chris Peterson says, “It is surprising how expensive it is to care for Sungate and it’s surprising how few residents in this very nice neighborhood contribute.”

Your annual dues help fund the maintenance of the park at 55th St and 70th E Ave, as well as the landscaped entrances on 51st St and on Sheridan, as well as repairs to the brick wall.

If you’ve already paid your dues, thank you. If you still need to pay, either use the form on the back or visit our website at
