Residents and stakeholders gathered at the Lee Park Recreation Center on October 19 for a public meeting to unveil the design concept for the new Lee Park pool. The event, held at 3000 Pamela Ave., provided attendees with the first opportunity to see the proposed design.
Irving Parks and Recreation, in collaboration with the Capital Improvement Program staff and the design firm, incorporated feedback from residents and stakeholders collected earlier this year to create the current design concept.
The design has areas for children with floatables, beach slides and slides with runouts.
"We wanted to have facilities and activities within the pool that are active. When we think of aquatics and pool, we don't want to have just flat water all the time. We have flat water and also vertical water.", said Dunaway Associates Senior Landscape Architect Adam Brewster.
With that in mind, the design also includes a three lane lap pool for swimming.
Meeting participants were encouraged to share their comments and suggestions regarding the concept design.
The input gathered during the meeting will be carefully analyzed and used to further refine the design concept. The updated plan will be presented to the Irving City Council later this year for their consideration.
The project is part of the "Let's Play Irving: Elevating Aquatics and Recreation" initiative that involves four recreation centers in Irving.
