Pflugerville City Council approved over $170,000 in Winter Storm Uri-related repairs to the Scott Mentzer Pool facility during its April 27 meeting. Shane Mize, Parks and Recreation Department Director, gave a presentation during the meeting outlining the pool’s repairs along with opening dates for other city pools.

Falcon Pointe Splash Pad

The 800-square-foot splash pad suffered no damages during the winter storm and will be open May 29 through Sept. 6. Falcon Pointe is located at 1813 Tranquility Ln., Pflugerville. The park is free to the public.

Mize said the heated eight lane, 25-meter pool is open year-round. The pool was damaged by the winter storm with about $5,000 in total repairs to the pump system, he said. Gilleland Creek Pool is located at 700 N Railroad Ave, Pflugerville. Admission cost for children, seniors and military personnel is $2 for residents and $3 for non-residents. Adult admission is $3 for residents and $4.50 for non-residents.

Scott Mentzer Pool

Currently the family-style water park is inoperable after suffering significant damage from the winter storm. According to Mize’s presentation, over $54,000 is needed to repair all six pool motors, electrical panels and plumbing. In addition, over $116,000 is needed for a full replaster and tile replacement.
