What’s closed for the holidays?

Wednesday, November 27, 2019 by Tai Moses

All city administrative offices and municipal facilities will be closed this Thursday and Friday, Nov. 28-29, to allow employees to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with friends and family. If you’re planning to adopt a furry family member this week, the Austin Animal Center closes at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 27, will be closed Thanksgiving Day and reopens at 9 a.m. on Friday. The Zilker Botanical Gardens and Deep Eddy, Big Stacy, Springwoods and Bartholomew pools will be closed Thanksgiving Day and will reopen Friday for regular business hours. You can visit Barton Springs Pool on Thanksgiving Day, but no lifeguards will be present, so swim at your own risk. Austin Public Library, Recycled Reads Bookstore, Austin History Center branches, and city recreation, cultural arts, nature, history and senior centers will all be closed from 6 p.m. on Wednesday, through Friday. Austin Resource Recovery residential collection customers should remember that collection will “slide” a day due to the holiday: Thursday collection slides to Friday, and Friday collection slides to Saturday.
