    I googled this and apparently these Geese are attracted to any pool, and golf courses, and any place they can make a nest. The various citations don't specify dark pools specifically either.

    There are tricks to try to deter them.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Yes, it is the water that attracts them. And once they like hanging out in your pool they will stick around like a bad neighbor! Scarecrows, alligators, sprinklers, dogs, screaming people are all good deterrents. Usually, after you chase them off enough times they will find somewhere else for their pool parties.
