Barton Springs Gets a Rain Check

Hot summer days draw Austinites to Barton Springs - but rainy weather has temporarily closed the pool.

Recent rains have caused flooding and debris to accumulate in Barton Springs Pool.

The city's Parks and Recreation Aquatic Division has temporarily closed the pool “due to flooding conditions,” according to a press release. No reopening date has been issued.

Staff must wait for rains to stop – not a problem we often have in Austin – before they can remove debris, clean the pool and assess its condition.
