Volunteer Opportunity: Spring Cleaning 3/7

Barton Springs Pool is closed from (Mon) Feb 23rd until (Fri) March 13th.

Come volunteer with the Friends of Barton Springs Pool!

Volunteers will be helping to scrub the sides & bottom of the pool to get ready for this next swim season! Miscellaneous jobs will also be assigned as needed including: painting, trash pick up, trimming, planting, and mulching flower beds around the grounds.

Please check the weather forecast & dress accordingly. We recommend you bring: clothing you don’t mind getting dirty, swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, hat, grip sandals (or water socks), and closed-toed shoes. If you have any gardening gloves, please bring a pair in case we run out as some of the duties can cause blisters. You will be permitted to use the showers when done with your shift; keep in mind that the staff will be cleaning so post a lookout at the dressing room door if you feel the need. At the beginning of your shift, please let the shift leader know of any jobs you do not feel you can do.

Ages 14 & above are welcome. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian available to sign a waiver on their behalf for the March 7th cleaning.
