The Texas Pool is open to the public every summer from Memorial Day though Labor Day.

Our summer hours are 11 AM – 8 PM on Tuesdays – Fridays, 10 AM- 8 PM on Saturdays and 12 PM -6 PM on Sundays. Once school starts in August, we are only open from 5 – 8 PM on Fridays and 1 – 6 PM on Saturdays and Sundays. We’re closed on Mondays for maintenance and private events.

Yes! The Texas Pool is open to tourists, visitors, members and their guests. You do not need a membership to swim at the Texas Pool. However, members receive free admission to the pool, discounts on aquatic programs and parties, reduced guest pass pricing, admission to members-only events and invitations to adults-only BYOB swim events.

Memberships start at just $160.

Daily admission for the Texas Pool is $10 per person including children over the age of 2.

Members get in free and their guests pay a discounted $5 admission fee.

Unfortunately, no. The Texas Pool is a historic swimming pool that was built in 1961. There are bathrooms at the facility but no changing rooms or lockers.

You are welcome to bring outside food and drinks to the Texas Pool. Pack a picnic lunch for your family or bring burgers to cook on our gas grills. Not sure what to cook for dinner? Pizza delivered to the pool is perfect for a summer evening!

Alcohol and glass containers are not allowed at the Texas Pool.

The Texas Pool is a 168,000-gallon saltwater pool with a shallow “South Texas” wading area for small children, a 10-foot-deep “Panhandle” and a “North Texas” island. Guests can swim from Houston to El Paso in about 3 to 4 feet of water.

The Texas Pool lifeguards will ask everyone to leave the water for 15 minutes if there is thunder and 30 minutes if there is lightning in the area. The pool may close early or open late if the forecast calls for continuous thunderstorms.

The Texas Pool’s lifeguards periodically conduct head counts and during peak hours may place the “Pool At Capacity” sign at the front gate for safety reasons. Members, guests, and visitors are allowed in on a first-come, first-serve basis as others leave. The pool’s capacity limit can vary based on staffing.

Unfortunately, the Texas Pool is not able to offer swimming lessons this summer due to staffing challenges. We hope to bring back our swim lesson program soon.

The Texas Pool is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, managed, maintained and marketed by a dedicated team of volunteers. We are seeking help in diverse areas. Check out our Volunteers page or reach out to to let us know you are interested. A board team member will call you to share some of the exciting volunteer opportunities available.
