Don’t pack away your pool bag just yet, friends! The Austin Parks and Recreation Department announced that Bartholomew Pool will now be operating on winter hours. The Austin City Council passed an increase in the budget that will allow us to keep splashing and swimming at Bartholomew Pool through the winter. Yay!

  • Monday – Friday: 2 – 7 p.m.
