Newly Constructed Collier Pool to Open Tuesday

Completed City Bond 2012 New Construction Project

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department is pleased to announce the opening at 5am on Tuesday, June 27th, of the highly anticipated Collier Pool, located at 3801 Harris Drive.  

The pool was closed in January 2016 to undergo a $2.5 million reconstruction project from the ground up, which was funded by a voter-approved 2012 City Bond. 

“We are excited to open this brand new, state-of-the-art 158,714-gallon pool which includes six lanes for lap swim, a zero-depth entry splash pad, and a big water bucket. The play features are part of the new concept in pools. Collier Pool was designed with input from residents of all ages who wanted conditioning and play features,” said Director of Parks & Recreation Department E. Jay Ellington. “It is a wonderful facility for everyone to enjoy.” 

Collier Pool, along with Greenwood, H-E-B and T.C. Ayers Pools, provides persons of all ages enjoyable ways to stay active and cool during the hot summer months. The aquatics program offers general swim, lap swim, swim lessons, adaptive aquatics, and water aerobics, along with pool party rentals.
