Barton Springs Pool Reopening June 11, After Flooding Cleanup

Austin Parks and Recreation's Aquatics staff are finishing the cleanup of Barton Springs Pool after the flooding that took place last week. Barton Springs Pool will re-open on Friday, June 11.  

Deep Eddy Pool had expanded its hours while Barton Springs Pool was closed. With Barton Springs reopening, Deep Eddy Pool will return to its regular modified hours on Saturday, June 12.  

Barton Springs Pool will have expanded available reservations for the month of June thanks to the hiring and training of additional open water lifeguards. The Aquatics Division plans to discontinue Barton Springs Pool reservations, and will begin accepting in-person sales by the end of June. 

Due to a lifeguard shortage caused by a year-long hiring freeze and disruption to training, pools will continue to operate with modified hours and capacity. Pool hours have been established based on available resources.
