When one pool closes, another opens

Tuesday, February 25, 2020 by Tai Moses

Everything benefits from a thorough spring cleaning, and swimming pools are no exception. Parks and Recreation will be closing Barton Springs Pool from Feb. 29 to March 13 for its annual spring cleaning. The pool is scheduled to reopen on March 14. Workers plan to remove some gravel from the bottom of the pool in order to restore its natural depth. Access to the dog beach will be limited during this procedure to make room for the equipment. For early birds who simply must get in the water before starting their day, Deep Eddy Pool will open at 6 a.m. while Barton Springs Pool is closed.
