Quail Creek has a Facebook Page!

This page will keep residents informed of events & may be used by neighbors to post items for sale, or lost & found.  As this page is maintained by a non-board member, any concerns or comments about the neighborhood should be directed to the board, rather than posted on the facebook page.

In order to access the Facebook page, search for:  Quail Creek Subdivision Property Owners Springfield MO.  You will go to the page at your convenience.  You will not be sent Facebook notifications about this page, like the ones you get when your friends make a post.

You'll know you have found the right page when you see a photo of the swimming pool and the fountain from last summer.  Pat Plumery maintains the page and Rhonda Penn periodically puts on notices/upcoming social events, etc.

Recreation Facility Rules


I. Every household is responsible for ensuring all members and their guests understand and follow the rules.

2. To maintain and secure our pool, tennis, and basketball courts, a lock system is used. Each homeowner has two identical keys that allow access. If a key is lost, one may be purchased from the Hospitality Chairperson ($5). These keys are for Quail Creek homeowners only. They are not to be duplicated. Please take precautions when using the tennis and basketball courts as the latch style locks will need to be relocked after each use. The pool gate has a self-closing latch that will require your key for access and leaving. It is necessary for pool users to sign in with the lifeguard. Each household is allowed four guests per member with a maximum of eight guests per household (except for the volleyball court where homeowners may sponsor 18 guests).

3. All guests must be accompanied by a QCPOA member. Facilities are for members, their family, and guests only.

4. Glass or breakable containers, wheeled vehicles, and pets are not allowed in the pool area or on the courts.

5. Smoking is prohibited.

6. Offensive language will not be tolerated.

7. Dispose of all trash before leaving the area.

8. The Board of Directors shall settle any questions arising with regard to the rules and shall have recourse in taking disciplinary action.


9. The Board of Directors reserves the right to revise these rules and regulations.




1. The pool will be open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Pool hours will be determined by the pool committee at the start of the season. Pool Hours will be determined by the pool chairman at the start of the season.


2. Pool rules are posted and provided for your safety. They will be enforced.


3. Lifeguards will have the discretion to ask a swimmer to perform a swim test to determine swim capability and possible restriction to shallow end of pool.


4. Lifeguards are present for the safety of swimmers. A homeowner may assume responsibility to address observed inappropriate behavior and strangers. If not comfortable in doing so, please contact a pool committee member or a board member.




A contract form must be obtained by printing it off our QCPOA website (click here) or picked up at the pool, filled out, signed, and a deposit check attached two weeks prior to the date desired. If the number of guests requires additional lifeguards, the deposit is to include the additional amount. Each homeowner is allowed eight guests, any more is considered a party, and requires a contract. The homeowner must accompany their guests. A photocopy of the contract is provided on page 6 of the QCPOA directory for information. The deposit amount will be returned after the party upon clean inspection. Click (here) to check Pool/Pavilion availability. Pool questions and reservation requests can be emailed to qcpoa.pool@att.net.ol@att.net




1. When others are waiting, there is a one-hour time limit.


2. Tennis court lights are to be used solely in conjunction with playing tennis. They are on a one-hour timer.
