Beverly S. Sheffield Education Center at Barton Springs closing as part of renovations

Monday, August 21, 2023 by Eric Webb

Movin’ and shakin’ happening at Barton Springs Pool: The Beverly S. Sheffield Education Center will close on Sept. 5, according to the city, as part of the long-coming Barton Springs Bathhouse rehabilitation. Renovation construction will begin early next year, and during that time, the pool’s main entrance will move to the location of the education center. The center’s “Splash! Into the Edwards Aquifer” exhibit will close on Aug. 22 so it can be disassembled and moved in preparation. While pool patrons use the temporary entrance, the city hopes to create “an opportunity to educate pool visitors about the importance of protecting water and preserving salamander habitat.” Go to the city’s website for more info.
