Barton Springs Pool reopens
Thursday, June 10, 2021 by Tai Moses
Bartaholics, rejoice! The parks department’s aquatics team has completed its cleanup of Barton Springs Pool after the flooding of last week and the popular pool will reopen this Friday. Deep Eddy Pool, which had expanded its hours while Barton Springs was closed, will return to its regular modified hours on Saturday. And thanks to some newly hired and trained lifeguards, Barton Springs is able to expand its available reservations for the month of June. Barton Springs Pool is open daily from 5-8 a.m. for free swimming at your own risk (translation: no lifeguards). On Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, the pool is open from 8 a.m.-10 p.m. with lifeguards present. Reservations will be required until the end of June.
