With the efforts of community leaders, the City of Austin 2018 G.O. Bonds included funding for the construction of an aquatic facility for the Colony Park neighborhood. Through input received during the development of the Aquatic Master Plan and the Colony Park District Park Master Plan, the pool classification has been identified as a Community Pool. While primarily serving the Colony Park and Lakeside communities, Colony Park Pool will draw visitors from surrounding neighborhoods. This new aquatic facility will complement the recently completed Colony Park District Park that provides a baseball field, soccer/multi-sports field, a large play area with elements of nature-based play, fitness equipment, two pavilions, picnic tables, drinking fountains, and a hike and bike trail that connects the adjacent communities.

Project Description

The community classification provides for the following aquatic characteristics and amenities: lap lane pool, zero-entry activity pool (tot pool), water slide, spray ground feature, diving board, gender-neutral bathhouse, family restrooms, deck space, training/party room, and aquatic office space. The project will also participate in the City of Austin Arts in Public Places (AIPP) program, which will commission a permanent art installation at the pool facility.
