Community Pool

The City of Windcrest community pool is closed.

The Windcrest City Council tasked the Parks and Recreation Commission with gathering feedback from the community regarding the future of the community pool/property.  The Parks and Recreation Commission created a Pool Subcommittee consisting of  three (3)  commissioners to work together to create a survey and provide a recommendation to the City Council.   

The Parks and Recreation Commission reviewed the survey results and provided City Council their recommendation  to a recommendation for council at their Parks and Recreation Agenda Packet 07.29.2023 .  Chairman Flinn presented the Parks and Recreation recommendation on a community pool to the City Council at the  July 17th City Council Meeting.   At the July 17 Council Meeting, Mayor Dan Reese appointed Mayor Pro-Tem Strzelecki and Councilman Yax, Place 4, to a Mayoral Committee to begin researching and seeking outside funding for a pool in the City of Windcrest.

Parks and Recreation Commission Recommendation to City Council 

Based on the survey results the Commission recommended the following to City Council.

  1. Demo and rebuild a new pool at the existing location (5609 Winsong).
  2. The new pool should have a beach entrance area.
  3. The new pool should be deep enough and large enough to have a lap swimming area – not necessary for it to meet swimming competition standards.
  4. Create a water play feature – that could result in a water play feature  for extended annual use .
