Goodbye summer?

Tuesday, August 14, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

It’s that time of year again – it feels like summer will never end, and the pools are beginning to close. In fact, some of Austin’s city pools have already closed. Civitan, Gillis, Metz, Parque Zaragoza, Kennemer, Stacy Wading and West Austin pools closed Sunday (Aug. 12). This Saturday, Aug. 18, Dottie Jordan, Givens, Rosewood, Dittmar, Dove Springs, Martin, Montopolis, Canyon Vista, Balcones, Brentwood, Dick Nichols, Patterson, Murchison, Ramsey, Reed and Westenfield pools will close. Then, on Sunday, Sept. 23, a host of splash pads will close: Chestnut Splash Pad, Lott Splash Pad, Rosewood Splash Pad, Metz Splash Pad, Bartholomew Splash Pad, Clarksville Splash Pad, Eastwoods Splash Pad, Pease Splash Pad, Ricky Guerrero Splash Pad and Bailey Splash Pad. Then, finally, Mabel Davis, Garrison, Northwest and Walnut Creek pools will close on Sunday, Sept. 30.
