Balmorhea State Park pool reopens following repairs


(KTSM) – West Texans will once again be able to cool off at the Balmorhea State Park pool just in time for Memorial Day weekend.

As KTSM reported, the facility was closed for several weeks due to draining gate repair.

The pool opened ahead of schedule on Thursday.

“Thanks to the quick work of our excellent contractors, the pool gate has been repaired and the pool will reopen for normal hours,” park officials wrote in a Facebook post.

With recreational swimming and scuba diving, the Balmorhea pool is one of the top tourist attractions of the West Texas park.

The pool will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
