Austin's Barton Springs to close during SXSW

Barton Springs pool will be closed for cleaning during the same week as SXSW.

AUSTIN, Texas — The city of Austin released in a newsletter the pool would be closed for its annual spring cleaning from March 4th-15th.

During the closure, gravel will be removed from Barton Springs and the pool will be returned to its natural depth.

Access to the dog beach will be limited during the closure as that area will serve as staging for gravel removal equipment during the closure.
