CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — City council members awarded a contract for the design and construction of a pool at Bill Witt Park on the south side.
The nearly $800,000 contract was awarded to Austin-based Kimley-Horn for the park near Yorktown Boulevard.
Corpus Christi currently has five city swimming pools. None of them are on the south side.
They do hope to bring in a competition pool and a recreational pool - one with play features, seating areas and shade.
A construction deadline hasn't been set.
