Jack Carter Pool

Plano, TX

jack-carter-pool-plano-tx-12 jack-carter-pool-plano-tx-4The original Jack Carter Pool, built in 1983, was shut down in 2013 due to mechanical deficiencies. In addition to the aging pool being functionally obsolete, a study was conducted by the Federal Emergency management Agency which showed that the pool’s current location was in a 100-year floodplain. To overcome this challenge, the new pool was built in another part of the park, creating a waterpark oasis for children, teens and adults.

July 2016 marked the grand opening of the new Jack Carter Pool. The new $12.5 million aquatic center was designed to accommodate over 1,000 patrons and features a wide variety of amenities including:
