MAKE A DASH FOR A SPLASH POOL IN AUSTIN!

MAKE A DASH FOR A SPLASH POOL IN AUSTIN!

  |     |   Local Events, Uncategorized

With the forecast for August in Austin indicating that there’s a hot month on tap, we thought we’d fill this month’s blog with a list of our favorite splash pools in Austin.  There’s no doubt that they are there for a great reason and all offer either a free or low price point to help those of us who live in and around our apartment community in Austin keep cool during this steamy month in Texas.

 

A special thanks and credit goes to Austin CityMomsBlog for providing this information online, that we’re now sharing with you!  (P.S. It’s one of our favorite blogs about raising families in Austin so check it out when you have some time to do so.)
