Metz and Mabel Davis pools still in limbo

Wednesday, May 6, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

A recently released summer pool schedule may have ruffled some feathers in some Austin neighborhoods, but Parks and Recreation officials want you to know that nothing has changed since last week’s Open Space, Environment and Sustainability Committee meeting. Cheryl Bolin, the Parks and Recreation Department’s Aquatics and Athletics manager, said that her division is still considering options for both Metz and Mabel Davis pools. In an email to the Austin Monitor, Bolin explained that additional leak detection is underway, and results from that work are expected “in the near future.” As for the future of the pools, Bolin wrote, “These results and the feedback received from the community will be considered with regards to the status of Metz and Mabel Davis for the 2015 season. If operational changes are made, the pool schedule will be adjusted accordingly and rereleased with new information.”
