The Colony Aquatic Park Is a city-owned facility with a heated Indoor Pool, Outdoor Leisure Lagoon, shade covered Wading Pool and an interactive Splash Zone for preschoolers.
Besides a large Public Swim in the summer, the Aquatic Park hosts (year-round) several swim and triathlete teams, lessons, adult lap swimming, water walking and deep water jogging.
In addition, this facility is normally a favorite private party place for kids of all ages. Unfortunately, because of staff shortages, party rentals are on hold for the 2021 summer.
Planning a party for the 2022 summer? Next year, rent the entire facility for a large private gathering, or just one pool if your group is smaller. The 2022 summer party calendar opens next year in mid January!
Current Youth Registrations
Award winning, the Aquatic Park offers a wide array of creative class levels and pricing.
For both swimmers just starting out and those who are building on basic strokes, the Aquatic Park offers Private Lessons throughout the year. Semi-private classes are added in the summer. Instructor Biographies and skill level details are available at the Swim Classes page. You can both see the schedule and register by checking out "COURSES" at our Online Registration page.
For advanced swimmers who can comfortably swim 25 yards without flotation, Shark Fin clinics are designed to feel like a swim team without the commitment that a competitive group requires. For more information, visit the Competitive Classes page.
Employee of the Year
Austin Galvan, The Colony Aquatic Park’s Employee of the Year, is homegrown at many levels! Not only did he learn to swim at TCAP, as a child he spent almost every Tuesday and Thursday summer afternoons at Public Swim. For a future lifeguard, it was an excellent start to learning rules, and facility operations.
He has always been a sports fanatic and was on both The Colony High School’s football and basketball teams. Currently a junior in Business Marketing at the University of North Texas, he hopes someday to work for professional teams such as the Cowboys, Mavericks, Rangers or Stars.
A lifeguard for five years, he considers the job fun and is never bored scanning from the stand or working with the kids. He has a special connection with young lifeguards and loves training new staff members.
His co-workers selected him for this honor because he puts a lot of effort into work and still maintains a pleasant personality. He is reliable and thorough. His staff training workouts are fun and challenging.
He is the son of Chris and David Galvan. He is following a proud tradition in his family, as both his brother, Danny and sister, Brittany have been lifeguards.
