Barton Springs: Double the # of lifeguards close half the week, we don't have enough lifeguards. Management full employment.

07/07/2021

If Barton Springs employed as many lifeguards as Deep Eddy per square ft. they'd have 100 LifeGuards/day.

06/24/2021

I had a friend be assaulted by a lifeguard at morning swim because he didn't get out of pool fast enough. Touching a patron not ok

06/17/2021

Barton Springs is fully employed everyday but open 4 days a week. There is no cleaning on Thursday. We are being cheated, Aquatics

06/14/2021

Austin Aquatics once again, they know how to waste money and provide a horrible experience. The reservation system is a nightmare.

A Misleading C.D.C. Number 05/16/2021

A Misleading C.D.C. Number

Saying that less than 10 percent of Covid transmission occurs outdoors is akin to saying that sharks attack fewer than 20,000 swimmers a year. (The actual worldwide number is around 150.) It’s both true and deceiving.

A Misleading C.D.C. Number We have a special edition of the newsletter on a misleading C.D.C. statistic.

AUDIT OF THE PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT RESOURCE ALLOCATIONFinding 1: PARD’s resource allocation process is ineffective and does not provide a basis for strategic department‐wide decision making. The Office of the City Auditor released a report Tuesday accusing Parks and Recreation Director Kimberly McNeeley and Assistant Director Liana Kallivoka of giving another employee a “special privilege,” improperly using more than $22,000 worth of sick leave and wasting $39,000 of city funds.

the vicious weed

04/07/2021

I understand why Barton Spring pool and Deep Eddy are closed so much, they are getting paid by FEMA to be closed. Genius

03/29/2021

Can you believe Parks and Rec are closing Deep Eddy for 3 weeks for cleaning. What a joke, but not for patrons.

03/15/2021

02/14/2021

I want to know why is the pool closed? Why isn't it swim at your own risk? Is there some superstitious idea that COVID is spread in 30º weather? Why is the city stealing the crown jewel under our noses? Is SOS doing anything?? Shanda !! The water is as warm as it has ever been, it is so perfect.
