One of the many activities which will occur this summer at the pool will be water fitness classes at the Bailey’s Commons pool on Garden View Way.

The WetYet? Water Fitness Company, owned and operated by instructor Nancy Brouillette, will be hosting the popular “Shallow Water Workout” fitness class. The class is not only healthy; it is tons of fun too! Adults of just about any age and any fitness level are encouraged to participate. In fact, you don’t even need to know how to swim, as classes are held in the shallow end of the pool.

The “Shallow Water” class will be held on Thursday evenings starting June 20 through August 8, 2024 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. and is open to King Farm residents only with a valid Amenities Pass/Key Fob to access the Bailey’s Commons pool on Garden View Way.

The deadline to register is June 14, 2024. If you have additional questions, please email activities@kingfarm.org.

Periodic exterior inspections of the homes/lots in King Farm are important for ensuring all property owners are maintaining their home/lot in accordance with the governing documents. These maintenance standards contribute to enhancing curb appeal and property values.

HOA Inspections USA, an independent inspection company, will take photos of homes as part of the inspection process. The photographer will be identifiable by their colored safety vest. The photographer will be using cameras to take photos of homes from common/public areas. The photographer will not discuss what issues may be cited for yours or anyone else’s property.


If maintenance items are identified, a notice from HOA Inspections USA will be sent via USPS mail. Email notifications will NOT be sent for the initial notice. The initial notice will provide a compliance date to bring the noted items into compliance. 

If the items are not brought into compliance by the comply date, then a Final Notice/ Intent to Hold Hearing will be sent via USPS mail, email (if available) and posted to the property address door. 

FINAL NOTICES have been sent to properties located on the following streets:

Bonnibelle Place, Dunloggin Drive, Game Creek Drive, Heritage Fields Way, Landis Way, Lawson Way, Rolling Fields Way, Silver King Lane, Treemont Way, Trotter Farm Drive, Shorthorn Way, Pasture Side Place, Saddle Ridge Circle, and Watkins Overlook.

RockView Program

If you have a ring camera (or other front door/doorbell camera), you can register it with the RCPD. The RockView program allows residents and business owners to voluntary register their privately owned video security camera systems with the RCPD. Registration in the RockView program does not enable law enforcement to view camera footage without an owner’s permission. However, the RockView program will allow city police to quickly identify security cameras that may have captured criminal activity when a crime is reported nearby. For more information about the RockView program, click here

If you have a crime or concern to report, please contact the Rockville City Police Department at:
