As we close out the 2016 season, Friends of Barton Springs Pool will have the final volunteer pool cleaning on Thursday, October 6, 2016, with 2-hour shifts starting at 9am. As the summer temps decline, this is a great chance to enjoy the pool in its pristine and uncrowded state while also helping “give back” to Barton Springs. So if you’ve been playing coy all summer, waiting for us to beg before you come plunge in the pool, here’s your personal invite to come take care of Barton Springs Pool, our beloved watering hole. Cleaning projects include push-brooming the pool bottom of the shallow end, scrubbing algae from the sides, rails, and stairs, and helping with landscape efforts to beautify the grounds, including weeding the lawn and gardens, turning the mulch, 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!
