Austin Parks and Recreation Aquatic Facilities Needs Assessment

City of Austin, Texas

BCI was recently contracted to lead the City of Austin through their Aquatic Facilities Needs Assessment. The comprehensive process includes an evaluation of 36 current pools of varying age and condition, with many being over 40 years old. The process will identify strategies to better serve the City residents that will be based upon: an extensive public engagement process; analysis of neighborhood trends and needs; and extensive evaluation of their existing facilities, especially analyzing factors such as compliance with VGB, ADA, and State and local health codes. The goal is to develop strategies and recommendations to allow the City to provide quality aquatic experiences for the next 20 years and beyond.   BCI assembled a team of local design professionals to supplement the firm’s aquatic expertise.
