JDFAC Indoor Pool Repairs & Renovations

The Aquatic Center at JDFAC closed on Wednesday, February 1, 2023 due to major renovations and repairs needed. Specialists and engineers were brought in to inspect the facility and the findings were a complete failure of the HVAC system within the Aquatic area which necessitated closing the facility.

  • With the complete failure of the HVAC system, this system has to be specially designed by the engineer to fit the specs and square footage of the facility with a current sustainability and efficient model to fit the needs for safety in the pool area and this process take a lot of time to build from the ground up.
  • Since February 1, 2023, the city hired contractors and created a plan for much needed repairs and created the action steps to address these needs as soon as possible. 
  • Additional repairs include improving the pool surface, windows, lighting, the pool deck, fixtures, and the whirlpool.
  • In August, 2023 the bid process was finalized, and will take another 30 days to complete.

The Little Rock Parks department is dedicated to provide a quality aquatic experiences and believe this closure is in the best interest of the center, our members, and our guest. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 

For further information, please call the Parks & Recreation main office at 501-371-4770.
