Marine Park Pool

Ft. Worth, TX

Marine Park - Ft. Worth, TXIn July 2008, Counsilman-Hunsaker conducted a city-wide aquatic facilities master plan which included several public meetings to help determine priorities for the future of the city’s aquatic facilities. Implementation strategies included replacing the city’s aging and obsolete pools with new neighborhood aquatic centers. Economic modeling was also provided for each concept including projected costs, estimated attendance, potential revenue, and estimated operational expenses. Pleased with the results of the study, in 2012, the city began implementing the replacement of several pools, the first of which was Marine Park Pool.

The original Marine Park Pool was constructed in 1926.  Requiring major renovations and significant site/building improvements, the city was eager to fulfill the needs of its citizens with an updated aquatic center for all to enjoy. The new Marine Park Pool opened in May 2013. A colonial-Spanish style bathhouse was designed to be compatible with the homes and buildings found in Fort Worth’s historic north side. The façade includes one large and eleven small arch insets to mark the entrance into the aquatic center.

The new aquatic center features:

6,200 sq. ft. Recreational Pool

  • Four 25-yard lap lanes
  • Two stair entries
  • Zero depth entry
  • Submerged wet deck area
  • Interactive play structure with tipping bucket
  • Shallow water spray features
