As identified in the 2007 Baytown Marketing Development Plan, the city residents pointed to a need for a large family aquatic center to draw from inside and outside their community. The Wayne Gray Sports Complex, located near a major highway ad an ample footprint to add attractions and accomplished this goal.

From this Marketing Development Plan, Counsilman-Hunsaker was retained to be part of the design team for an addition to the Wayne Gray Sports Complex. The addition includes 22,000 sq. ft. of water space. Amenities include:

25-yard lap/fitness pool

  • Two pirate-themed children’s play features
  • Pirate-themed crossing activity
  • 670 ft. lazy river
  • FlowRider
  • Bowl slide
  • Four lane mat racer slide
  • Two body flume waterslides with run outs
  • Two raft waterslides
  • Two zero beach entries
  • Climbing wall
  • Wet deck with bubblers, spraying palms, and pirate- themed features

Following another major expansion in 2014, the facility boasts a new 10,000 sq. ft. wave pool, 700 sq. ft. sprayground, and two signature waterslide rides (Boomerango and Colorado Drop) as well as a new 3,350 sq. ft. concessions building and a 3,300 sq. ft. wave pool building.
