Forest Park Pool

Forest Park Pool, the oldest Fort Worth aquatics facility, was the last of the city's seven pools to shut down due to budget and maintenance issues in 2010. Thanks to the backing of the Radler Foundation and local engineering firms, Forest Park Pool is making waves again.

About the renovation


The city, with assistance from The Radler Foundation, chose to reopen Forest Park pool for the 2013 swim season due to its status as the pool with the most public use in Fort Worth’s inventory.

The Radler Foundation provided a $500,000 grant for the repair of Forest Park Pool, and the city put in $330,000 from capital reserve funds.

The city contracted with Mark IV Construction in the amount of $661,264.95 for the repairs.
