The North Lake Natatorium is getting a facelift.
The 30-year-old facility was the first indoor pool in the Irving area. The natatorium is a joint-owned venture of the City of Irving, Irving ISD and the Dallas County Community College District.
The convenient north Irving location provides a home to the Pirouettes of Texas synchronized swim team, as well as swim lessons, water aerobics classes and other recreational events.
This month, the facility will close for eight to nine months for remodeling. The $6 million renovation, funded by the city of Irving and Irving ISD, will include a new roof, locker/shower/toilet areas and HVAC system; upgraded plumbing, electrical, fire safety, lighting and communications/technology systems; a replacement of the pool liner; and a renovated pump room.
A 50-meter facility, North Lake Natatorium is the perfect synergetic partnership. The school district depends on the facility for various high school events, classes and the Swim Safe program. While Irving ISD has the budget for the remodeling project, it cannot afford the operating cost. On contrast, the city could not cover the remodeling cost, but has the budget to take on the operating cost.
Both entities are working together in a win-win collaboration for the Irving community.
