Are there any motels near you with a nice pool area? You might be able to have the party there and just pay for a couple of rooms for the night. That's how our Holiday Inn used to so it.

Emler Swim School hosts birthday parties. They provide people to play in the pool with the kids who are also lifeguards. Good luck!

My daughter just has a pool party thru our city's Parks and Recreation Department for both of her kids' birthdays. To have a party including the use of a party room does require a rental but it was reasonable. The cost depended on the number of participants. The party was while the pool was open to the public. Only the party room was private.
However, you can still have a pool party without renting the party room. Last year my daughter had a birthday pool party, also with Parks and Recreation, for her daughter's 9th birthday. There were 6 girls and they played together in the pool for an hour or so and then we went outside for the rest of the party. The only cost was the price of admission.
Because of your son's age and size you would probably have to be in the pool with him. Check to see how many adults are required in the pool for a group the size you're inviting.

There is an indoor pool in Allen, TX (look on the City of Allen website). I don't think you would have to rent the entire pool out. Depending on when you have the party, it shouldn't be that crowded. It is not expensive since it is a public pool.

The Emler Swim schools do birthday parties, but I don't know how expensive they are - they are indoor though. Auqu-fit in Plano has an indoor pool - check and see if they do birthday parties. I noticed they have an ad at the bottom of the newsletter today with their info. Good luck!

The Allen Natatorium is AWESOME!! And inexpensive! You can bring in pizza and rent a party room and it has slides and a lazy river! Did my son's party (in February) there and all the 11 year olds loved it!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND it! And we drove from Firewheel in Garland!

Have you tried your local hotels? They often rent their pools and are relatively inexpensive.
