SHIPE POOLS ARE CLOSED IN 2017
We are sad to report that both pools at Shipe Park will not open this summer.
City of Austin Aquatics and Parks and Recreation leadership decided that it was not tenable to open the pools at Shipe Park this summer because of the severe leaks that exist in the plumbing for the pools. Because of the concern about the water that would be wasted and the substantial cost of the pool’s maintenance needs, the city staff decided to keep the pools closed.
The Good News: Planning and construction for a new pool at Shipe Park is on a timeline that will ensure it will be opened for the summer 2018 pool season. We are all looking forward to a newly designed and constructed pool for our neighborhood coming soon!
In the meantime, stay cool at other neighborhood pools this summer! The closest city pools are:
- Ramsey Neighborhood Pool – 4201 Burnet Rd
- Patterson Neighborhood Pool – 1400 Wilshire Blvd
- Eastwood Splash Pad – 3801 Harris Park Blvd
- Bartholomew Municipal Pool – 1800 E. 51st St
