Summer Amenities

COVID-19 regulations
The Centers for Disease Control has published recommendations that fully vaccinated citizens in areas of substantial or high transmission of coronavirus wear masks indoors to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others.

Jo Daviess County reached a high level of community transmission. Based on this information, we posted signs indicating that masks are required inside common spaces of the Owners’ Club and other GTA facilities.
In order for everyone to have the most enjoyable time possible, please follow these simple guidelines.
Anyone without a proximity card will have to purchase a guest/day pass.

All swimmers under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

No glass is permitted in the Pool Complex.

Only small pool toys will be allowed.

The Galena Territory Association is committed to the health and safety of our members, guests, and employees. Contact Recreation & Lifestyle Coordinator Jason Wiegard at 815-777-2000 if you have any questions.
