The City of Irving’s AquaStars program allows children with special needs, along with their families and guardians, to safely enjoy access to a premier city swimming facility. The program is custom-designed for children with special needs ages 18 and younger. Participants must be accompanied by an adult or guardian. On a monthly basis, AquaStars provides special needs children with an opportunity to sidestep crowds and experience the excitement of play in one of the city’s aquatic facilities.
Dates for the first half of 2018 are:
AquaStars will be held at the Heritage Aquatic Center, 200 S. Jefferson St. Participants pay $1 per visit.
The safety of AquaStars guests is paramount to program organizers. The Heritage Aquatic Center pool features a special needs accessible ramp, chair lift and water chair. The city will provide the appropriate lifeguard and staffing ratios, as well as access to waterproof wheelchairs.
