In early 2022, the City of Irving contracted with a third-party to assess the state of Lee and Lively Parks Pools. The assessment highlighted several facility issues that included the following:
- Neither pool has the appropriate filtration system for the baby pools nor required secondary water sanitation systems.
- Both facilities have ADA compliance issues due to the sloping into the baby pool areas and deck clearance space.
- Both pools are losing a substantial amount of water, with Lively Pool losing 6,000 to 9,000 gallons per day and Lee Park Pool losing 3,500 to 7,000 gallons per day.
