Special thanks to our wonderful Spring Cleaning volunteers and Pool Staff for generously contributing their time and effort to help clean Barton Springs Pool on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014.  With nearly 100 participants clocking in more than 200 volunteer hours, volunteers helped pull weeds, brush and clean the stair rails and sidewalls, pot plants (it’s not what it sounds like), till gardens, spread mulch, excavate rocks, shovel sediment, and move the debris to the compost area by rolling wheelbarrows outside the pool area.  All this hard work glorious Spring day helped contribute to the cleaning, well-being, and beautification of Barton Springs Pool.

Of course, we would welcome any of the Spring Cleaning volunteers to join us at one of our monthly cleanings which occur on the first Thursday of each month.  We keep details posted on our website and also in our membership newsletters.
