AUSTIN (KXAN) — Barton Springs Pool will reopen Friday after closing due to heavy rains and flooding on Barton Creek.

The pool will resume its normal operation hours from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. The pool is closed on Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. for routine cleaning.

Heavy rain closed the Barton Creek Greenbelt last week when the water was running at 2,250 cubic feet per second.
