Pool cleanings take place in two-hour increments from 10-12 and 12-2. We need three to ten volunteers for each shift along with experienced volunteers to serve as shift leaders.

At the seasonal monthly pool cleanings, FBSP volunteers scrub rocks, vacuum the pool bottom, clean algae off steps and railings, skim algae off the pool surface, plant flowers and help maintain the pool grounds, paint benches and trim, and generally lend a hand to make the pool and grounds as clean and beautiful as possible.

So come roll up your sleeves, bring a friend, have a snack and enjoy the company of other Barton Springs enthusiasts. We look look forward to seeing you there!

Pool Cleaning to Proceed on Thursday (June 4)!

The rain is gone.  The sun is nigh.  And the creek is still running high, but even so, the pool cleaning is still on for Thursday, June 4. There will be more weeding, and weeding, and weeding. Volunteers will also help replace mulch that washed away, trim the muhly grasses, touch up flower beds in the bathhouses and out front, and relocate flood debris.  Come join us between 10 and 2 to help the pool!
