FBSP is hosting an event with the Austin Parks Foundation for their annual It’s My Park Day, and guess what we’re doing!?  Spring Cleaning down at the pool!  It’s the last Saturday the pool is scheduled to be closed before opening for the 2011 swim season and we need everyone’s help to put the sparkle in the Springs!

Please register through the Austin Parks Foundation website, or go directly to the event by clicking here. The event will take place Saturday, March 5, 2011.

Volunteers can choose from 4 two hour shifts beginning at 10 am and continuing until 6 pm.  You are welcome to stay as long as you’d like, please just let us know what time to expect you so we can organize tasks and snacks accordingly.  Email your information to

Please make sure that everyone who is joining you has registered on the event site so we are sure to have a t-shirt for them.

There are lots of projects that need our help both in and out of the water, pushbrooming and algae removal in the pool, landscaping and trail maintenance out of the pool, so please dress appropriately.  This means:
Long sleeves, pants and shirt, closed toed shoes and socks for grounds work.  Wet clothes for working in the pool.  Don’t forget your towel and sun protection!

Gloves, tools, snacks and beverages will be provided, and camraderie will be created!

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you down at the pool this Saturday, just head inside the gate at the main entrance.
