Put your parkas away, pool season’s here

Thursday, February 10, 2022 by Tai Moses

Sure, last week was a bit, uh, chilly, but all that unpleasantness is in the past and it’s time to turn your attention forward to POOL SEASON. Season passes are now available for city swimming pools via the ATXSwims app, which you can find at Google Play and the Apple App Store. Once you’ve got your pass, you’ll use your phone to enter the facility. You can also get passes at – you’ll just need to email a copy of your receipt to and then pick up your season pass at Bartholomew, Barton Springs, Deep Eddy, or Springwoods pools. Speaking of Barton Springs, the popular pool will be closed for annual maintenance Feb. 26-March 11, but there are many other alternatives; just visit to find locations and hours of operation. The ATXSwims app comes in mighty handy for daily ticket sales too, if you can’t commit to a season pass.
