AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you’re wondering about where to take a dive as temperatures rise and summer weather approaches, here’s a list of pools open in Austin.

No reservations are required, however Austin Parks and Recreation says capacity will be limited. Those attending are asked to limit their time at the pool to two hours.

KXAN will update this list as pools reopen and hours change.


Springwoods Pool is located at 13320 Lyndhurst St. in north Austin, which is near the intersection of U.S. Highway 183 and State Highway 45.

As of April 11, it is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. for lap swims. It’s closed on Sunday, Monday and Thursday.

It’s open Monday, Thursday and Friday from 12:15 p.m. to 2 p.m. for lap swims and 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. for recreational swims. On Sunday, it’s open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. for recreational swims.
