A splash of good news

Friday, March 13, 2020 by Tai Moses

The Save Our Springs Alliance wants to remind you that Barton Springs Pool, the crown jewel of Austin, is opening for the season this Saturday, March 14, at 5 a.m. Admission is free until 8 a.m., when the regular gate fee kicks in. Regular swimmers should consider buying a family season pass, which is good for two adults and two kids, whether you’re a family or a group of friends and neighbors. The pool is closed Thursdays for cleaning but the greenbelt is open daily for hiking. Parks and Recreation wants everyone to get outside for spring break, with a common-sense reminder to use best practices to stay safe and healthy.
