Northside Swim Center
$7 Million - Precinct 3
The development of the Swim Center was the result of a unique partnership between Northside ISD and Bexar County. In May 2008, Bexar County voters approved a tax referendum to contribute $7 million in funding, that was combined with $13.8 million provided by NISD.
Construction of a 50-meter, Olympic-size outdoor swimming pool and 25-meter diving and warm-up pool began at the Farris Athletic Complex by May 2011 and was completed by the summer of 2013. Both swimming pools were built adjacent to the existing Northside Natatorium at Loop 1604 and Hausman Road, creating a mega swim center that will be the only one of its kind in the central United States.
The Northside Swim Center now plays host to several large regional and national meets per year.
The outdoor swim center features shaded seating for 2,400 spectators as well as high-tech timing, lighting, sound, and video scoreboard systems. Locker room facilities accommodate as many as 1,200 athletes. The diving/warm-up pool is 25 meters in length and provides NISD and the community a fantastic facility to develop divers.
NISD is responsible for the maintenance and operations of the facilities. The facility meets both international and national standards set by USA Swimming.

Culebra Creek Soccer
$5.23 Million - Precinct 2
Culebra Creek Soccer park, managed by Alamo City Youth Soccer Organization (ACYSO) was developed through $5.23 million in Visitor Tax funds, along with the City of San Antonio's donation of land and contribution of more than $1 million.

The AYSCO's objectives are to provide quality coaching, officiating and playing fields; to stimulate competition through competitive league and to maintain a recreational and developmental program.
The Culebra Creek Soccer Complex, adjacent to the existing fields on FM 1560, added 7 new fields to the 5 fields located on the complex. This not only enables more practice space for the organization's growing membership, it also provides many opportunities for growth of tournaments attracting players from all of San Antonio, the entire state, and throughout the country. The addition of Culebra Creek Soccer Park provides more green space for youth soccer players in one of the most rapidly growing areas of San Antonio. This soccer venue also enables the potential to bring both select college showcase tournaments and U.S. Youth Regional Soccer games to San Antonio, a region not currently viewed as offering ideal soccer venues.
