VIEW ALL PROJECTS

The City of Dallas commissioned the team of Counsilman-Hunsaker, Kimley-Horn & Associates, and AUI Contractors to design and build their new $5.5 million Bahama Beach Waterpark located in Thurgood Marshall Park.

The concept was to create a compact, highly themed municipal family aquatic center with play features for tots, families, and teens.
Bright colors, a tropical theme and signage were used to create a fun-filled and attractive environment.
