Deep Eddy closes for spring cleaning
Wednesday, April 6, 2022 by Tai Moses
The weather may feel like summer, but the calendar says spring, and that means it’s time for Deep Eddy Pool to close for its annual deep-clean. The pool closes Sunday, April 10, and reopens Monday, April 25. In the meantime, Austin has many other fine swimming pools where you can get relief from the heat; check AustinTexas.gov/Pools to find locations and hours of operation. Speaking of pools, the parks department’s Aquatic Division is working hard to fill all of its lifeguard vacancies in order to keep Austin’s treasured swimming pools open. Applicants starting at age 15 are now accepted and will receive training and certifications in CPR, first aid and water rescue. And that’s not all: According to PARD’s news release, “In addition to an hourly wage of $15 an hour and above, paid sick leave, a free bus pass, and flexible scheduling, the city is offering a $500 summer completion bonus for staff members that work from June through August.” Apply to be a lifeguard at LifeguardAustin.com.
