The Core – Coppell Aquatic Center

Coppell, TX


The Coppell Aquatic and Recreation Center first opened its doors in 2000, and has since served the community by providing many recreational and educational programs, services, events, and activities for all ages. In May 2015, the center officially changed its name to The CORE, to better reflect how the center has become the “core” of Coppell’s fitness, family and community.

The Aquatic and Recreation Center offers indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center, gymnasium, indoor running track, class and meeting rooms, child care, recreation classes and camps, and swimming lessons. Following a major renovation/expansion in 2012, the facility boasts a new fitness center with cardio and strength areas, new aerobics room, locker and shower areas, an updated lobby and exterior pool restrooms.  The updated aquatic components include:
