Is It Fair for My HOA to Prohibit My Grandson From Using the Pool?

Whether an "Adult-Use Only" pool might violate federal or state discrimination laws, or be otherwise impermissible.

My grandson comes to visit me for a couple weeks every summer. He loves to swim at the pool in my subdivision. The pool is also popular with the many children that live in the subdivision.

The homeowners’ association (“HOA”) that manages the subdivision recently placed an “Adult-Use Only” sign at the pool. It sounds like the rule was adopted because the HOA board was concerned that a child would get hurt at the pool. Is it legal to prohibit my grandson from using the pool?
