|Come Speak Up for the Master Plan!
This is so important: it's time to show your support for the Barton Springs Pool Master Plan!
We need YOU to come to the joint Environmental / Parks and Recreation Board Committee meeting next Monday, May 21 at 6:15 pm.
If at all possible, please get there early and sign up to speak in favor of the general grounds improvement projects approved in the Master Plan.
The Joint Committee will be discussing the improvements to the south side of the pool, including:
- a new ornamental perimeter fence (no more chain link and barb wire!)
- moving the fenceline outward to incorporate more trees and lawn into the pool area, and also allow for an ADA-accessible trail
- a new and improved ticket booth, replacing the current small shack
- a new ornamental entrance gate
If you would like to see these amenities come to the south side of the pool, please attend this meeting!
The meeting is at the Austin Nature and Science Center, 301 Nature Center Drive. Click here for a map.
We'll see you there!
Friends of Barton Springs Pool is a small organization helping to clean and litigate for the pool. We have done everything from planting trees to sweeping rocks underwater and we have had a blast doing it. The organization has accomplished many things to help protect and better the springs and it would not have been possible without our amazing and dedicated volunteers and members. So join FBSP and all its wonderful members to help protect and improve Barton Springs.
