Barton Springs Pool Master Plan

In 2009, Austin’s City Council passed a Resolution adopting the “Barton Springs Pool Master Plan: Concepts for Preservation and Improvement.”  The goal of the Master Plan is to return Barton Springs Pool to its former glory, where the water was cleaner and the experience of the pool was more enjoyable.  The Master Plan proposes appropriate additions and renovations to the swimming pool, its buildings and its grounds that respect the fragility of this unique natural and historical setting and also accommodate the significant user demands on Austin’s most popular park amenity.
