Little Elm Aquatic Centre, Little Elm, Texas
In 2018, OpenAire was approached by the team working with the Town of Little Elm, Texas about the renovation of the local Little Elm Aquatic Park.
Little Elm is a part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is an extended suburb of Dallas, as such the city had heard of OpenAire’s other municipal waterpark, Epic Waters, located in nearby Grand Prairie, Texas.
Epic Water’s tremendous success and accolades, including its ability to offer year round activities and revenue to the municipality meant that the team reached out to OpenAire so they too could offer the same experience to their residents.
OpenAire is working with the local team at VLK Architects and Brannon Corp to create a one of a kind destination on the waterfront of town. The 42,000 sf retractable roof enclosure will house a multi level waterpark connected to the existing recreation center at one end. The park is set to open in 2021, and is currently under construction.
