Passes soon available, parking soon limited at Barton Springs

Tuesday, February 6, 2024 by Elizabeth Pagano

The sun is out and swim season is upon us, according to the Aquatic Division of the city’s parks department. Season swim passes go on sale on Feb. 12, ahead of a March 9 reinstatement of entry fees at pools for the season. While swim passes do include a parking pass, this year’s swim season will be complicated by the Barton Springs bathhouse rehabilitation, which will remove parking on the north side of Barton Springs Pool. In addition, William Barton Drive will be limited to emergency and construction vehicles and those needing accessible parking. The parking squeeze will be in effect from Feb. 15 until spring of 2025. Barton Springs will be closed altogether from Feb. 24 through March 8 for normal maintenance.
