There is an emergency phone at the pool for residents to use if a safety emergency occurs. This phone is located on the post at the pool gate common to the Green Barn. If an emergency arises and you need EMS or Police, please pick up this phone and press the button. You will be automatically connected to emergency personnel. The address for the pool is located above the phone for easy access.

Trails

The trails at Carnes Crossroads present numerous options for fitness and recreation. Already, the community’s first trails connect the Green Barn, pool and Village Green to neighborhood streets and some of the community’s first businesses, and a “fitness loop” offers five exercise stations and 14 pieces of equipment that can be used for a wide variety of strength building, balance and cardiovascular exercises. As Carnes Crossroads grows, additional trails will connect to future neighborhoods, parks, businesses and amenities.
