New Summer Amenities Opening

Spring has officially sprung and that means our outdoor facilities are almost ready for the upcoming season. Most will open Memorial Day weekend. Below are a few details on summer amenities available to residents:

 

Boat Permits

Boating permits are required for all personal, non-motorized watercraft use on Oquirrh Lake. Residents can obtain a boating permit after completing a Daybreak Community Association lake orientation. Each permit is $12 and is good for the entire 2019 season. Permits may be purchased at the Community Center and must be displayed on the boat during use. When using personal watercraft, please remember the south boat ramp is the only area authorized for launch.

 

Boat Rentals

Boats are available for free checkout by residents with an amenity card for use on Oquirrh Lake. They can be checked out in one and a half hour increments. Guests are welcome as long as they are accompanied by a resident and pay a $5 amenity guest fee. All personal watercraft, including paddle boards and kayaks, must be captained at all times by a resident 14 years of age or older. Rentals can be found at the boat ramp off of Kestrel Rise Road and are available on a first-come first basis. The Association has kayaks, canoes, and stand up paddle boards available at the boat ramp. Keep in mind that rentals may not be available due to inclement weather. The season runs Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.

 

Sail Boats

Sail boats are available to rent after receiving a sail boat certification. See boat attendants for more information or to schedule a lesson.

 

Pools 

There are five pools available for general resident use throughout Daybreak. The regular season runs Memorial to Labor Day weekend. Guests are able to use the pools, provided they are accompanied by a resident at all times and pay a $5 amenity guest fee. In cases of inclement weather, access to the pools may be restricted. Each pool has separate programming schedules and hours of operation, including times for lap or open swim. Click here for more details.

 

Swim lessons 

Daybreak Summer Swim School is back, with lessons available for kids as young as six months. The first session begins June 17, and registration will be available starting May 27. See class schedules and descriptions along with the registration link here.

 

Splashball

Daybreak is proud to partner with USA Water Polo to offer Splashball, the official non-contact introduction to the sport of water polo. This sport is designed for kids age 5-11 and helps in the development of swimming skills. We will be offering a league at the DCC pool, with the first session beginning June 3. Second session dates are coming soon. Cost is $45 per participant, plus a $10 membership with USA Water Polo. Registration is open now, so sign up today!

 

Tsunami Fitness

Try out this new option for water fitness to improve strength, endurance and balance. Class members will do HIIT, yoga or total body work outs on boards floating in the water. The class is included in group fitness passes or will cost $7 per class without the group fitness pass. Spaces are limited so be sure to reserve your board. Reservations open 24 hours before each class. Learn more

 

Duffy Boat

This free boat ride picks up and drops off at the main dock on the corner of Kestrel Rise Road and Daybreak Parkway. Taxi services to East Lake Park are available upon request. The boat will run Thursday to Sunday, 4 pm until dusk. Services will commence Memorial Day, and will run through Labor Day weekend. Residents must have an amenity card to board and are welcome to bring guests.

 

Fishing

The lake has been stocked with trout, bluegill, channel catfish, and largemouth bass. A valid Utah State fishing license is required, and all corresponding rules apply. Please stay within designated fishing areas, as some of our landscaping is fragile. Please also be respectful of other users, especially boaters.

 

Swimming

Swimming or wading in the lake is not allowed and this goes for our furry friends too. This is due to negative effects on water quality and ecosystem balance. Large shade structures around the lake are prohibited as well because the wind has carried these to the Land of Oz before.
