Counsilman-Hunsaker has enjoyed its long history supporting the city of Dallas with their aquatics program. Services have included master planning, spray ground design, and outdoor aquatic center design.
Starting in 2006, the city retained the team of Counsilman-Hunsaker, Hector Gomez Architects, and Kimley-Horn & Associates to plan and design new spray grounds in several Dallas area parks.
The 2012 Dallas Aquatic Facilities Master Plan analyzed the future of the existing city-wide aquatic system. Multiple scenarios were developed and studied, including reconstruction of the city’s 20 aging swimming pools in the same locations, constructing larger more diverse aquatic centers on fewer sites, and incorporating additional low-cost spray grounds.
