Irving, Texas. April 21, 2021

Irving Parks and Recreation's Aquatics division announce that the North Lake Natatorium opened on April 19th.

Beginning April 19, the North Lake Natatorium, 5001 N. MacArthur Blvd., is open on a modified schedule for lap swim and fitness activity to Irving residents only. Residents must reserve their visit online through the  Parks and Recreation ActiveNet website.

  • Adult and senior Irving residents are welcome at all time slots. 
  • Children ages 12 and older are welcome to lap swim from 5 to 6 p.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday only.


Guests using aquatic facilities should note:

  • No food, drinks or coolers are allowed, with the exception of bottled water.
  • Restrooms are open.
  • Locker rooms and showers remain closed.
  • Proper swim attire must be worn to and from the pool. Changing facilities are unavailable.
  • Guests are requested to wear a face mask covering their mouth and nose on deck areas when appropriate.
  • Guests must provide their own Coast Guard-approved life jackets, kickboards, pull buoys and other equipment. No items are available for loan.


The Parks and Recreation Department has taken great care to build a safe reopening plan for Irving residents. Due to limited availability, scheduling and reduced capacities, city facilities are available to Irving residents only. When visiting aquatic and recreation facilities, patrons should bring water, hand sanitizer and hand wipes.

Residents must reserve a time for all recreation center and aquatic facility activities. Once registered on ActiveNet, members can purchase an Irving Parks and Recreation (IPAR) membership card for $5 at the recreation centers. At this time, all guests must be an Irving resident to receive an IPAR card.
