Austinites make a splash at Barton Springs Pool

Barton Springs Pool will be open for a short time in the mornings starting tomorrow, Saturday, March 5. Early bird swimmers will have three hours to enjoy the cool water once the gates open at 5 a. m.

The pool has been closed for a flood debris removal project along with annual maintenance. The cleanup project is still underway but doesn’t start until after 8:00 a. m. That leaves a small window for aqua-phenes to make a cold water splash.

Barton Springs Pool will resume normal hours of operation on March 12, 2011.
