Heritage Aquatic Center Renovations Scheduled for Summer

Heritage Aquatics 2

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, including 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.

Heritage Aquatic Center also will receive updated LED smart overhead lighting, which will provide brighter illumination than the current lighting, as well as cut the frequency of bulb outages, reducing the amount of money and staff hours spent annually on replacement bulbs. In addition, the LED lighting is more energy efficient, and the system will be programmable. Patrons and staff will always walk into a well-lit facility. The smart lighting system will allow for remote monitoring of light conditions and functions, and include alerts when parts are in need of repair.



Residents may use the North Lake Natatorium, 5001 N. MacArthur Blvd., for public swim during the renovation. Fliers identifying the facility’s hours and address will be on display at Heritage Senior Center — located next to the Heritage Aquatic Center — in the interim.

Heritage Aquatic Center morning  Senior Gold, and Forever Young water aerobics classes will be moved to Senter Park Pool, 901 S. Senter St., during the renovation. Lively Park Pool, 903 N. O'Connor Road, will hold seniors-only swims 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Friday each week. The Arthr-i-cize class will move to North Lake Natatorium, 7 to 7:45 a.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

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.
