Who's the Boss?

The Texas Pool was built in 1960 and opened to the public in 1961. Developed by the famous Texas Hunt Family, the Texas Pool was a selling feature for the Dallas North Estates neighborhood, designed to attract families of nearby Texas Instruments in what would become Dallas' Telecom Corridor. Generations of Texans learned to swim, shared summers, and created memories at the Texas Pool. Yet, over time, the fabric of our neighborhood and families changed. Children grew up and moved away. Moms returned to the workforce. Fewer folks were home together for the summers. Time passed and the Texas Pool fell out of mind and knowledge. However, volunteers stepped up to save the Texas Pool. In 2010 a new vision for the Texas Pool was explored with the establishment of the Texas Pool Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit, in 2013. Over the next few years, the Texas Pool was transformed from a private club to a Historic Landmark and Community Gathering Place. In 2017, the Texas Pool became the Texas Pool Foundation with one Board of Directors, one vision, and one glorious future for the Texas Pool. Today, everyone who works with the Texas Pool is a volunteer. As a nonprofit, the pool is actually owned by the supporting members of the Texas Pool Foundation. So to answer the question, "Who owns the Texas Pool?" the answer is-- you do. We all do. Each of us is a vital part of the Texas Pool Community. So get your feet wet. Dive in. Volunteer. Make the world a better place. Together we can make a difference in our community that is as big as Texas!
