Pool openings signal start of summer

Monday, June 3, 2019 by Tai Moses

Are you ready for swimsuit season? Most of Parks and Recreation Aquatic Division’s 45 facilities – that’s 33 pools, 11 splash pads and Barton Springs Pool – are currently open except for the following:

  • Ricky Guerrero Splash Pad: Heavy rains delayed the improvements so the splash pad’s opening date is unknown at this time.
  • Reed Pool: Severe leaks have delayed the opening while repairs are being done. PARD anticipates the pool opening by June 20.
  • Dittmar and Ramsey pools: These two pools were scheduled to open by June 3, but major renovations and repairs make that date unlikely. Check with PARD for opening dates.
  • Govalle and Shipe pools: Both pools are in the process of being replaced, and recent storms have put the construction work behind schedule. Projected opening of the pools is expected in mid-July. The swim season for these two pools may be extended through September.

More info about closures can be found here. Find the full list and location of all pools here.
