the situation is:

I am trying to ask the apartment manager for a key to open the
door of a fence around the pool.

Which one is popular one? If they are all wrong, what is the correct way to say?

1. May I get a key to the door of the fence around the pool? (too formal)
2. May I get the swimming pool key? ( swimming pool can't have a key.

3. May I get the key to access the swimming pool?

Welcome to the forums, zhengl_2000!

A fence has a gate!

may i have the key for me to be able to use the pool?
Welcome to the forums, topak!

"May I have the pool key?" The manager will understand exactly what you want!

By the way, what city in Massachusetts are you from? I grew up in Boston!

Cheers,
Amigo
