Barton Springs Pool will reopen Sunday and resume its regular operating hours, the Austin Parks and Recreation Department said Friday.
The pool will be open from 5 a.m. until 10 p.m. daily but will still be closed on Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. for routine cleaning, parks officials said.
Enjoy the water while you can this weekend. Though the National Weather Service forecast calls for only a 20 percent chance of rain on Sunday, storms are likely to roll through Austin on Monday.
Parks officials had closed Barton Springs Pool on Wednesday, citing flooding from isolated storms earlier in the week.
During the closure, early morning swimmers were encouraged to use Deep Eddy Pool, at 401 Deep Eddy Drive.
Flooding from heavy rains also prompted the Parks and Recreation Department to briefly close the pool from Feb. 20 to Feb. 24.
Last month, Barton Springs Pool was closed for a week while work crews gave Austin’s iconic swimming spot its annual spring cleaning.
