More pools set to reopen soon

Monday, June 27, 2016 by Kayleigh Hughes

The city has released the fifth update to its pool schedule, as lifeguard staffing continues to improve. Givens, Dove Springs and Springwoods pools have been given an opening day of June 26, while Civitan, Govalle and Shipe Wading pools are all set to have an opening day announced in the near future. Patterson Pool is currently open for programming only from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Though most of Austin’s pools are now open, the city is still in need of many more lifeguards and is encouraging interested Austinites to call (512) 974-9330 or go to Salaries, they note, start at $13.03 per hour.
