Irving’s First Indoor Swimming Pool to Close
The North Lake College Aquatic Center opened its doors in 1985 and was the first of its kind in the city of Irving, Texas. For nearly three decades, it has been utilized by the city and school district for various purposes. The pool’s primary visitor base will soon need to search for a new location to hold daily lessons, classes and competitions as North Lake College plans to close the pool after 2014.
Pool Patrons Have Limited Options
Irving and the school district use the aquatic center more often than North Lake. The city pays the college in return for public access, daily classes and swimming lessons. Out of the average 50 hours per week the city uses the pool, 20 are used for Irving ISD’s swim team and physical education programs. The aquatic center’s patrons will be required to pay to take over pool maintenance should they request to continue using it. Otherwise, they will have no choice but to seek another location as the pool will be closed by 2020.
Swimmers Do Not Have to Miss a Lap
The facility has seen better days and if plans for closure go forth, the facility will not be around much longer. Your weekly pool sessions do not have to be put on hold when the pool permanently ends services. This is the best time for members of the Irving community to get started on that backyard pool project. Exercising in water offers many physical and mental health benefits and installing a pool is a smart choice for those wanting to remain active. Consider having a swimming pool and start enjoying your favorite exercise in the comfort of your own home.
