Heritage Aquatic Center

Heritage Aquatic Center Renovations Begin May 31

The Heritage Aquatic Center will close for approximately eight weeks for pool renovations, beginning May 31. The Parks and Recreation Department is working with the City of Irving Building and Equipment Services Department on the $690,000 project.

The aquatic center, which opened in early 2003, will receive updates to its 120,000-gallon pool, which includes resurfacing and replacing tile in the pool, and resurfacing the large spa and current channel. A new climate control unit will be installed to provide cooling and dehumidification of the air, as well as heat for the pools and spa.

The city is eager to update and improve the Heritage Aquatic Center because of its popularity among residents and its high traffic flow. The renovated aquatic center is slated to reopen in August.
