Mabel Davis Pool closed for the summer

Tuesday, June 20, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Yesterday, the city announced Mabel Davis Pool won’t open this swim season. The Southeast Austin facility was temporarily closed earlier this summer when the Parks and Recreation Department found it was leaking more than 200,000 gallons of water per day. According to a press release, crews found “significant leaks in the pool’s return lines” upon further inspection. As for the rest of the summer: Residents can take advantage of shuttle service from the site to the nearby Garrison Pool. Find a full list of pools and splash pads on the city’s website.
