Sherwood & Woodson Pools

Odessa, TX

The City of Odessa owns four outdoor seasonal aquatic facilities, each built before 1950.

The city recognized the pools reached their physical and functional obsolescence and commissioned the aquatics expertise of Counsilman-Hunsaker to plan and design new swimming facilities that would continue their community’s long history of aquatic programming.

For consideration, Counsilman-Hunsaker designed several concepts that included a complete renovation of each pool as well as new construction and developing partnerships with community groups for the development of a new aquatic facility.

In 2002, the City of Odessa moved forward with the renovation of two of their pools, Woodson and Sherwood.

Each pool renovation included:

  • New leisure pool
  • Zero-beach entry
  • Interactive water play features
  • Current channel
  • Vortex
  • Waterslide
  • Fitness lap lanes
  • One-meter springboard
