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.

Spring Cleaning season is almost upon us!  Barton Springs will be closed for only twelve days this year (March 1-12) for annual cleaning so the pool staff is really looking forward to our help to get the Springs sparkling spic and span for Opening Day, Saturday March 13.

City Aquatics Program Coordinator, Wayne Simmons, has given us a list of the areas we are needed most and there is something for everyone each and every day; Fun with flowers and beds, Soil Aeration Extravaganza, Pool Scum Showdowns in the Sludge Pit…  The fun never ends.

Each day will also have a Main Event! Continue reading “Barton Springs needs You!”
