Pharr Natatorium

Pharr, Texas
Construction Cost: $24 million
Area / Square Feet: 72,800

In January 2022, the City of Pharr coordinated with the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District to celebrate the grand opening of the city’s first-ever natatorium. The aquatic facility proved to be a huge benefit to athletes at both PSJA ISD and UTRGV for swim practices and regional/state competitions, while providing an additional recreational facility for residents of the City of Pharr and surrounding areas. 

The impressive 72,800-square-foot building features a 50-meter competition pool and a dive pool with diving boards and platform diving, making it the perfect location to host swimming and diving championships. The center also includes seating for 1,300 spectators, a state-ofthe-art timing and scoreboard system, video boards, a visible running clock, a UV water-treatment system, and numerous energy-efficient design features.
