Since there were some people who liked my Last Summer Glow Parc, so there´s annother comunity lot I´d like to share with you...

Today I present you a matching community pool with wild landscaping and a little beach club for your Sims to meet and have parties.
Matching Last Summer Glow means it furnitures and sunshades are also old and bleached so there´s a Shade of Yesterdays Glory which I find somehow sometimes stimulating.
This lot has all to let your Sims relax, besides swimming they can fish, have grill-parties or a drink at the bar.
In the corner there´s of course a little shag to fulfill their bathroom needs.

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: 42320

Additional Credits:
This lot could be made because of the stunningly simple tutorial "How to build a pool in a lake" by AllHeartAnne. Thank you.
Big Thanks too for the tksshower by petallotus (I use it in almost every building now), for the billboard recolours by Leesester (love them) and for all the bautiful patterns by different artists...I can not mention all, but I really enjoy your works!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I must confess, you found the misstake...
the lot unfortunately has the size 32x32 which will not fit on any 3x3 lot and is too smal for the bigger ones, I did not think first, soo sorry. There is no way do make it smaller now, I could only make it fit a bigger lot, maybe I will do anything similar soon.
Thanks a lot for noticing this, I will watch out better next time.
It was originally put at a community lot in Sunset Valley after I deleted a rabbithole next to the police station, I don´t remember which.
Hope you will find a solution for this, thanks again for your comment...
