Deep Eddy Pool is an historic, man-made swimming pool and is the oldest swimming pool in Texas.  In 1915, A.J. Eilers, Sr. bought the land surrounding the swimming hole and built the concrete pool.  The pool gets its name from an eddy formed by a large boulder in a popular swimming area on the river.  Cold springs rose from the river banks next to this popular swimming area and the water from these springs continue to fill the pool today. 

Due to the age of Deep Eddy Pool, renovation work was needed to maintain the structural stability of the pool shell.  With funding from the 2006 bond initiative, work on the pool began in November 2011.  The decks, piping and pool bottom were replaced as a part of the renovation efforts.  The cost to renovate Deep Eddy Pool was $2.3 million.

Deep Eddy Pool will close Sunday, April 10 through Sunday, April 24 for its annual spring cleaning.
