Deep Eddy Pool Reopens

Deep Eddy Pool is back open today — or at least part of it.

The deep end of Deep Eddy is open today. The shallow end opens up tomorrow at 10 a.m. The oldest swimming pool in Texas, Deep Eddy has been shut down since last year for a full round of renovations.

The Austin Parks and Recreation Department says the pool bottom has been replaced and the west end now features a zero depth entry. Visitors will also notice new decks and new retaining walls with seating. 

Last year, a new mural was added to the pool area to show the long history of the pool.

Deep Eddy Pool is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. It’s located at 401 Deep Eddy Avenue.
