Barton Springs Pool now fully operational

Tuesday, June 7, 2022 by Tai Moses

Starting this week, Barton Springs Pool will reopen Wednesdays, returning the wildly popular swimming pool to full operational hours. The pool is open daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. with lifeguards, and 5-8 a.m without lifeguards. The exception is Thursdays, when the pool closes from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. for its regularly scheduled weekly cleaning. Speaking of lifeguards … the city’s Aquatic Division continues to seek lifeguards to staff and operate the city’s summertime pools. Pay ranges from $16-$19/hour and includes signing bonuses, paid sick leave, free bus passes and flexible scheduling. Find more details and apply at
