Big Stacy Neighborhood Pool, located in the Travis Heights neighborhood at 700 E. Live Oak St., Austin, is reopening to the public April 6 after briefly closing for repairs.

Most of the Austin Parks and Recreation Department’s 45 public aquatic facilities are closed. Last fall, the city reopened five of its pools, including Big Stacy, Barton Springs Pool and Deep Eddy Pool. However, after the winter storm in February, those five pools were shut down again.


Barton Springs and Deep Eddy opened later in February after the storm. Springwoods Pool in Northwest Austin reopened March 9, and Bartholomew Pool in East Austin continues to be closed for maintenance and repairs.

The rest of the city’s community, neighborhood and regional pools along with its splash pads remain closed. The city said in a news release that repairs are continuing at Big Stacy Pool, which remains without running water. Portable restrooms are on site.

No reservations are required; however, capacity is limited. Visitors are asked to limit their time to two hours.
