As identified in the 2007 Baytown Marketing Development Plan, the city residents pointed to a need for a large family aquatic center to draw from inside and outside their community. The Wayne Gray Sports Complex, located near a major highway ad an ample footprint to add attractions and accomplished this goal.
From this Marketing Development Plan, Counsilman-Hunsaker was retained to be part of the design team for an addition to the Wayne Gray Sports Complex. The addition includes 22,000 sq. ft. of water space.
Following another major expansion in 2014, the facility boasts a new 10,000 sq. ft. wave pool, 700 sq. ft. sprayground, and two signature waterslide rides (Boomerango and Colorado Drop) as well as a new 3,350 sq. ft. concessions building and a 3,300 sq. ft. wave pool building.
Counsilman-Hunsaker also prepared the City of Baytown with job descriptions, Texas health code requirements, on-site workshops to understand water chemistry, and proper use of the pool equipment. A Standard Operating Procedure Manual was written for the new aquatic staff, covering all the necessary information and procedures for a long lasting, properly run aquatic center.
