In January 2022, the City of Pharr coordinated with the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) and the far San Juan Alamo Independent School District (PSJA ISD) to celebrate the grand opening of the city’s first ever natatorium. The aquatic facility proved to be a huge benefit the athletes at both PSJA ISD and UTRGV for swim practices and regional/state competitions and provided an additional recreational facility for City of Pharr residents and surrounding areas.
The impressive 72,800 sq. ft. building features a 50-meter competition pool, a dive pool with diving boards and platform diving, making it the perfect location to host swimming & diving championships. The center also includes seating for 1,300 spectators, a state-of-the-art timing and scoreboard system, video boards, a visible running clock, a UV water treatment system, and numerous energy efficient design features.
