Parks department releases summer pool schedule
Tuesday, April 11, 2017 by Nina Hernandez
Spring is in the air here in Central Texas, and that can mean only one thing: The Parks and Recreation Department has released its 2017 pool schedule. All the information anyone could ever want on the city’s aquatics facilities, including schedules, can be found on the city’s website. This year three pools, Govalle, Shipe and Givens, are slated to be closed for repairs. Givens alone is leaking more than 50,000 gallons of water per day due to cracks in the pool wall. Due to the closures, the Parks department is planning to offer Govalle and Givens residents transportation to other community pools. Find out more information about those plans by calling 512-974-9330.
