Triangle Aquatic Center Outdoor Pool

Project Type Athletics & Community

Location Cary, NC

Integrated Design continued its long-standing involvement with the Triangle Aquatic Center with a new outdoor pool facility in 2022. The training and programming pool can be configured as nine 50-meter lanes or twenty 25-yard lanes that include heating and chilling technology, allowing swimmers to train outdoors year-round. The pool deck features a permanent canopy along two sides to protect swimmers and coaches from the weather and a 2,300-square-foot building to accommodate restrooms, operations, pool storage, and the pool’s mechanical systems.


This expansion brought the overall facility to four pools with 55 lanes. The Triangle Aquatic Center is home to the TAC Titians, USA Swimming’s top-ranked club, and a training facility for several Olympic and Paralympic athletes. The additional swim lanes expand the community mission of TAC to provide learn-to-swim lessons, certifications, fitness, open swim lanes, and community rentals.
