Barton Springs Pool opens today

Thursday, February 25, 2021 by Tai Moses

It’s not your imagination: Last week Central Texas was plunged into a frozen nightmare of subfreezing temperatures and pointy icicles. But, today the sun is shining and it’s time to go swimming! In fact, after being closed due to the “Severe Weather Emergency,” Barton Springs Pool and Deep Eddy Pool are reopening today, Thursday. Admission to both pools is free until further notice. Find pool hours of operation here. Barton Springs will close again from March 1-12 for “regularly scheduled maintenance” that includes removing some gravel from the pool “in an effort to return the pool to its natural depth.” Workers still have some storm damage to repair at Big Stacy, Bartholomew and Springwood pools, which will be closed until the structural and plumbing repairs are completed.
