Plano Aquatic CenterPlano Aquatic CenterPlano Aquatic CenterIn 2010, the City of Plano commissioned Counsilman-Hunsaker and Brinkley Sargent Architects to provide a swimming pool audit for the aging indoor pool and outdoor sprayground at the Plano Aquatic Center.  The audit included a visual inspection of the current conditions of the pool and all mechanical systems, and also identified design and/or equipment deficiencies.

After a thorough investigation of the existing facility and review with city staff, it was determined that repairing the existing pool would not serve as a cost effective method to achieve the desired programming goals for the facility. The city chose to renovate the indoor swimming pool and outdoor sprayground with new aquatic components. Other major improvements included the locker rooms, family changing rooms, entrance and lobby areas, a party room, classrooms, lighting and HVAC systems.

The aquatic features of the renovation include:

5,400 sq. ft. Indoor Multi-Purpose Pool

  • Six 25-yard lap lanes with depths ranging from 4 ft. to 9 ft.
  • Intermediate depth lesson area with grand stair entry and underwater bench seating
  • Shallow play area with terraced step entry, bubbler features, tot slide, children’s interactive play feature, and ADA compliant sloped entry
  • LED underwater lighting
  • New pool mechanical systems including pool heating and cooling capabilities

1,500 sq. ft. Outdoor Sprayground

  • Complete with a variety of water features (both ground level and above-ground) zoned for various age groups
  • Sequenced feature operation with automatic user activation
  • Colorful textured acrylic sprayground finish
  • Dedicated sprayground recirculation systems
