What’s closed on Fourth of July?

Friday, July 2, 2021 by Tai Moses

As you surely know, the Independence Day holiday falls on a Sunday this year, thus many city offices and facilities will be closed the following day, Monday. Among the closures are rec centers and senior centers and most museums (Elisabet Ney, Susanna Dickinson, George Washington Carver, O. Henry, Old Bakery and Emporium, Dougherty Arts, Mexican American Cultural Center and Asian American Resource Center). Austin Public Library branches, Austin Central Library and the Austin History Center will be closed Monday. There will be no changes to Austin Resource Recovery trash, recycling and compost collections, but ARR administrative offices will be closed Monday. City golf courses, tennis centers and Zilker Botanical Garden will be open as usual on Monday. Some swimming pools will be operating on modified schedules – check here for more info. Find details about Parks and Recreation closures here. The Austin Animal Center will be open on Sunday during normal hours, 11am-6pm, but will be closed Monday, July 5.
