Benefits of Having a Pool at an Apartment Building
July 12, 2018

There are many reasons to consider choosing an apartment building with a pool in Columbus OH. Some people dream of having pools for their entire lives — yet sometimes it can be financially difficult to purchase a single family home with a pool, which is why renting an apartment that offers a pool is a better solution.

At The Commons at Olentangy, we have a pool right in your backyard! This guide will help you understand just a few of the benefits that come with having access to a pool at your apartment building in Columbus OH.

It’s a great apartment amenity

Even though you may not use the pool on a daily basis, having access to one is a real plus when it comes to renting an apartment. Many apartments in the Columbus area do not offer on site pools, which means renters have to travel elsewhere to go for a dip and soak up some sun. Our luxury apartment complex ensures that the pool area is well-kept and cleaned on a daily basis and there will always be a staff member on hand.

Your social life will improve

If you don’t see your friends and relatives very much right now, you can bet that will change quickly once you have moved into your new apartment in Columbus! Just about everyone loves a pool and, even for those who don’t swim, it’s still fun to get together and enjoy the rest of the apartment complex’s amenities. In fact, The Commons at Olentangy also features a dog park, playground, and basketball and tennis courts. There’s nothing better than inviting a couple friends over and soaking up some sun for a few hours with your apartment within reach.

You can boost your fitness level

Some renters get so caught up thinking about the fun aspects of having pools that they completely forget they’re great for exercise, too. As a matter of fact, swimming is one of the best low-impact workouts you can do. It is ideal for people of all ages and demographics, including kids, the elderly, and even pregnant women. Once you have moved into your new apartment, make a point of checking out the pool deck. Jump in and swim some laps a few times per week and you’ll be amazed by how much better you start to look and feel!

You can go on vacation in your backyard

One of my most enjoyable parts of renting an apartment with a pool is having access to a relaxing oasis in your backyard. Even though nothing can quite mimic the level of relaxation you feel on vacation, our community pool area comes close! The space features an ample number of lounge chairs, a privacy wall around the perimeter of the pool area, decorative foliage, and cabanas with comfortable outdoor furniture. Grab a book, some sunscreen and spend a few hours relaxing in the sun just a quick walk from your apartment door.

If you and your family are ready to take the plunge and rent an apartment with a pool, make sure you do your research to find the best apartment in Columbus. Don’t hesitate to contact us at The Commons at Olentangy to inquire about our pool and other amenities, or check apartment availability online.
