On It's My Park Day (March 5, 2016), Friends of Barton Springs Pool’s “Spring Cleaning” will allow volunteers to give back to Barton Springs Pool by helping spiff up the pool before the pool reopens.  So if you’re weary of winter and seeking spring solace in the cool and clear waters of our beloved Barton Springs, come help the Springs with some lovin, scrubbin, weedin’, mulchin’, aeratin’, whackin’, brushin’, gardenin’, and just getting down in the groovy cleaning vibe of the SPRING CLEAN to help clean up the pool before the swim season reopens!!!!!

Volunteers can choose from 4 two hour shifts, starting at 8am.  We’re using GivePulse to register our volunteer shifts, so please click the "Register" link or button (above), enter the information for your t-shirt size, number of minors and liability form, register for your shift(s), enter “bartonsprings” for the code, and check the liability waiver.

Volunteer pool cleaning activities include push-brooming algae from the pool bottom, spreading mulch, landscaping and weeding work in the grounds, cleaning stair and sidewall rails, trimming and/or composting weeds and plants from the pool, painting bathroom facilities, planting around the pool grounds, repairing pool and grounds equipment, and generally lending a hand to make the pool and grounds as clean and beautiful as possible. There are lots of projects both in and out of the water, so please dress appropriately. This means long sleeves, pants and shirt, closed toed shoes and socks for grounds work. Wet clothes for working in the pool. Don’t forget your towel and sun protection! We like to think that we make the springs a better place for swimmers and the natural habitat that live there year round. So come on out and join us for this years It’s My Park Day and Friends of Barton Springs Pool spring cleaning extravaganza.
