Counsilman-Hunsaker, in support of Brinkley Sargent Architects, was retained by the City of McKinney to complete a Recreation and Aquatic Feasibility Study. The unique report consisted of three parts: 1) Community Center Feasibility Study, 2) Outdoor Waterpark Feasibility Study, and 3) Aquatic Master Plan. Planning for the community center included various concepts of fitness centers, indoor competition pools, and outdoor recreation pools. Factors incorporated recreation program practices of the park system, school district needs during the day and after school, competition users, and users resulting from fitness and aquatic memberships. In addition, planning for the waterpark included various sized activity pools, wave pools, assorted waterslides, lazy rivers, and other attractions. The three-part study included concepts to meet the needs of the new community center and the potential waterpark. Economic modeling provided operational costs and projected revenues while the aquatic master plan included steps in making the community center and the outdoor waterpark a reality.
