For your reading pleasure, edification, and entertainment, there is an interesting article about Barton Springs Pool posted at http://citygrammag.com/pool-your-resources entitled “Pool Your Resources.” It does a good job of describing the recent history of the grounds improvement project, with nice pictures and drawings of the pool area and improvements, and a “colorful” quote from Robin Cravey.
Please join us at the “Barton Springs Fest” to celebrate our local treasure on Saturday, August 10th at Barton Springs Pool for a full day of fun, outdoor and adventure learning, food and live music. Friends of Barton Springs will be joining other pool stakeholder and supporter groups at the ”Barton Springs University area” under the pecans trees outside the fence on the south side of Barton Springs Pool, so look for our table and new groovy green tie-dye FBSP t-shirts!
Officially sanctioned by City Council resolution to commemorate the anniversary of the August 8, 1992 voter approval of Austin’s Save Our Springs citizen-initiative ordinance, Barton Springs Fest will include Eco-Snorkel Tours of Barton Springs (8-10 AM), Diving Competition (9 – 10:30 AM), a number of Barton Springs University Speakers (10 AM – 4 PM), and Music on the South Hill (4 – 7 PM). Additional details are posted at www.sosalliance.org/community/barton-springs-fest.
