Coppell, TX City ofCoppell, TX
In 1997, the City of Coppell, Texas, retained the team of Brinkley Sargent Architects and Counsilman-Hunsaker to develop a business plan for a new recreation center. This project was developed for the growing City of Coppell to meet the citizen interest for more recreation facilities within their city. Services included developing estimated cost versus revenue projections as well as the traditional architectural role of design. The facility contains both family aquatic and traditional recreation center components in one facility. It was sited adjacent to a 100-acre park near the Town Center.

The facility opened in 2000 complete with an indoor gymnasium, fitness space, multi-purpose room, indoor leisure pool, and outdoor leisure and competition pool.
