The City of Hurst utilized Dunaway to evaluate the existing facilities at Chisholm Park for development of the Chisholm Park Family Aquatic Center. Our team of engineers and scientists provided aquatic programming and conceptual development for a new $7 million family aquatic center to replace the existing pool.  Dunaway led a multi-disciplinary team to design this unique aquatic facility with four distinct pools: 

  • a family beach with aquatic play structure
  • a tot pool
  • a 400-foot-long lazy river
  • a deep water diving pool

Additional play features include a 30-foot water slide tower with family water slides and a large sprayground. Mature trees frame the facility and provide shaded picnicking areas for families, while a variety of pavilions and fabric structures accommodate groups of any size.

This project is currently under construction utilizing a Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) delivery method. Strong collaboration between the design team, contractor, and City of Hurst have resulted in a project that has met all the programming goals within the City’s budget.
