Rock’N River in Round Rock

Hoping to spend some time in the water this Memorial Day weekend?  Most of the free pools in Austin aren’t open for the season yet, but plenty of splash pads and community pools are!

Community and municipal pools do charge admission, but a lot of them have some great amenities. Most also offer pool passes, which provide long term savings on admission fees.

We’ve rounded up links to several of the fun pools in Austin and beyond. If we missed your favorite, please let us know in the comments!
