Summer Pool Schedule Update

As lifeguard hiring and training continues, new pools will open for the July 4 weekend. Martin (1626 Nash Hernandez Sr. Rd.) and Dottie Jordan (2803 Loyola Ln.) pools will reopen on Sunday, July 3. Beginning July 10, Ramsey (4201 Burnet Rd.) and Mabel Davis (3427 Parker Ln.) pools will open. 

To allow greater access over the July 4 weekend, Deep Eddy Pool is rescheduling its normal monthly closure from Tuesday, July 5 to Tuesday, July 12. On July 5, the pool will be open 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM for lap swim only and 12:00 PM - 8:00 PM for recreational swimming.

Increased pool operations come as the Austin Parks and Recreation Department reaches 551 lifeguards ready-to-work. The Department continues to hire and train lifeguards to operate summer pools. Pay ranges from $16 to $19 an hour depending on experience and certifications. Staff get bonuses, paid sick leave, a free bus pass, and flexible scheduling. Information on becoming a lifeguard is available at
