Shipe Pool has closed for 2016, after a typically busy pool season.
Shipe Pool was built in 1934. After 82 years of service, it is in critical need of improvements. Thanks to a City Council allocation of 3.1 million, plans are underway to replace both the big pool and the wading pool.
Construction of the new pools is expected to begin at the close of the 2017 pool season and to finish in time for the opening of the 2018 pool season.
The Shipe Pool Design Team has hosted several open meetings and conducted an online survey to gather input for the new pool design. For more information, watch the Pecan Press or visit http://www.austintexas.gov/dep
