The Let’s Play Irving: Elevating Aquatics & Recreation plan to replace the Lee Park Swimming Pool moves forward. During the Sept. 14 City Council meeting, the council voted unanimously to approve two items:
- Name The Fain Group, Inc., as the Construction Manager at Risk (CMR).
- Award a design services contract with Dunaway Associates, Inc. The design contract includes the design of a new family-oriented neighborhood pool at Lee Park.
The CMR method is a project delivery method in which a construction manager is hired to oversee a project through completion. Utilizing the CMR method helps shorten the overall project time to construct the new Lee Park Swimming Pool, as well as streamline the process to provide the highest overall project quality for the most economical cost to the city.
The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board supported moving forward with the contracts at its June 12 meeting.
In June 2023, the City of Irving announced the bold ‘Let’s Play Irving’ vision. Part of the plan includes the demolition and replacement of the swimming pool at Lee Park, which is anticipated to open Spring/Summer 2025. Other projects in the plan include new facilities and amenities for Lively Pointe, Senter Park and Mustang Park.
