The city of Wylie developed two alternatives for a proposed aquatics center complex comprising both indoor and outdoor facilities to serve an area devoid of municipal aquatic venues.

Option A would feature an outdoor aquatic center with 18,000 square feet of water surface area. It would have a lazy river, leisure pool, wave pool, and tot pool. This option’s indoor aquatic center would have 5,385 square feet of water surface area with a leisure pool, four-lane lap pool, locker rooms, offices, lobby, party room or classroom space, and an aqua office. The estimated project cost for this option is $25.3 million.

Option B would reduce the outdoor center to 15,000 square feet of water surface area and replace the wave pool with a teen pool in return for a larger indoor aquatic center of 7,885 square feet of water surface area and an eight-lane lap pool. This option is estimated to cost $27.8 million.
Councilmembers indicated a preference for a larger indoor facility and discussed splitting the project into phases. The city plans to conduct a steering committee meeting in May and complete its feasibility study in June.
