The community enjoyed free food, games, and live music as the City Council, Parks and Recreation Board, and Community Development Corporation Board broke ground on the project. The new pool is expected to open in Summer 2023 and will feature almost 10,000 square feet of water surface, including a zero-depth entry pool, a separate lap swim pool, a lazy river and three-turn slide, and a splash feature. Voters approved funding for the project in 2017. In 2018, the City began the design process for the pool, which included site analysis and selection. The site analysis assesses environmental conditions, potential impacts to existing programs and amenities, and other site-specific considerations. Based on this analysis and input from the City Council, Parks Board, and citizens, Virginia Weaver Park was selected as the location for the new pool. The City received a grant from Texas Parks and Wildlife for $750,000 towards the construction cost. The pool was designed after broad public input from the community, which drove the selection of amenities.
