Good things come to those who wait at Carpenter Park Recreation Center

Due to unforeseen delays, we regret to announce that we must postpone the opening of the new indoor pool at Carpenter Park Recreation Center (6701 Coit Road). While we too are disappointed, we are confident this was the best decision to make given the circumstances. The special dedication ceremony and grand opening of the City’s newest pool has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 28th, starting at 6:00 p.m.

“It’s never easy to postpone something as exciting as this, but we have to make sure that everything is 100 percent for our residents when those doors open,” said Colette Hall, Recreation Services Manager. “Unfortunately, with large construction projects this sometimes happens and we sincerely apologize for the delay. We truly appreciate everyone’s continued patience and support as we wrap up the final phase of this project.”

To recap, this new pool features one of North Texas’ only indoor/outdoor water slides. The public is invited to stick around after the ceremony and be among the first to swim in the new indoor facility, which boasts fun features for the entire family. Construction on the 12,325-square-foot addition began in January 2017. The new facility offers four lap lanes for adult exercise, as well as a toddler zone with slide and other kid-friendly water features. Other amenities include:

• Current channel

• Party room

• A 21-foot slide that starts inside the building, winds its way outside and back inside

• ADA compliant pool access

• Large tinted windows for natural sunlight

“As Plano’s first recreation center, Carpenter Park Recreation Center has served generations of Plano residents since it opened in 1990, and this new pool will help continue to meet the needs of this growing community,” Hall said.

Open swim time is free with a recreation membership or visitors can pay a daily fee of $6 for adults and $3 for children. We look forward to seeing everyone there soon!
