Locals know Station Casinos properties Green Valley Ranch Resort and Red Rock Resort are staycation hot spots, for convenience as much as for their beautiful, oasis-like swimming pools. And this summer, both resorts are amping up their daytime programming for the weekends and opening up those amenities to everyone.

“We’ve always wanted to be a strong neighbor in our community, and we recognize our backyard area is very desirable, so we just felt like it was a good time to allow the locals to come back,” says Justin Moore, vice president and assistant general manager at Green Valley Ranch. “We put a lot into a new pool deck in the offseason, and it’s in great shape.”

The “backyards” at Green Valley Ranch and Red Rock are now open to the public Monday through Friday beginning at 9 a.m., with entrance fees at $25 for adults 21 and over and $20 for those under 21 (accompanied by an adult). Non-hotel guests ready to have fun in the sun no longer need to reserve a cabana, although that feature is still available, too, as are new food and drink menus at both venues.

On weekends, adults can attend pool parties at each property starting at 11 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays, at the Pond at Green Valley Ranch and the all-new Cabana Club at Red Rock. Admission costs $30 for men and $20 for women.

“We used to do events like these sporadically depending on holiday weekends, but we made the decision as a company to make sure Green Valley Ranch and Red Rock are doing consistent pool parties every weekend,” says Red Rock General Manager Bryan Lindsey. “At the end of the day, we know locals like to go down to the big pool parties a few times throughout the summer, but the Strip traffic can wear on you. We want to give those people, and industry people in general, something to do here, and that’s why we’ve got the DJs spinning all day Saturdays and Sundays and why we’ve given our culinary team some more room to create some really unique and tropical menus.”
