Update regarding the Nixa Aquatics Center pool

February 22, 2024

The Nixa Parks & Recreation department continues working to repair and improve the pool at the Nixa Aquatics Center. We anticipate construction work on the repairs and improvements to begin in March. We do not yet have a timeline for completion, but we continue to gather materials and work with construction contractors to try to complete the project as fast as possible without compromising the quality of the work. However, we are excited to announce that a splash pad area will be added!

Last pool season, once we found out the pool was leaking and had to be closed, we worked to try to resolve a significant leak in the pool. Unfortunately, we learned those first repairs did not stop the leak and we discovered much more work would be required. In the fall of 2023, we hired a pool engineering company to work with staff to develop the plans necessary to replace all the underground water piping for the pool.

The replacement of these underground pipes will ensure the pool sees many more years of service for the community. Along with the pipe replacement, city council also approved several upgrades and other renovations. These renovations include an in-water play area with play structure, more concrete pool decking with shade structures and seating, and upgrades to the behind-the-scenes mechanical system of the pool. A brand-new splash pad will also be added as an expansion of the Aquatics Center.

We hope you are as excited as we are for the future of the Nixa Aquatics Center, and we look forward to having the community back in the pool as soon as possible. Please stay tuned for more updates.
