Montopolis Pool is located in the Montopolis Neighborhood Park, located southeast of downtown Austin. The pool originally opened in 1979.
On February 1, 1974, Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) purchased the Montopolis Community Center from Montopolis Community Center, Inc. and also received five surrounding acres to develop into a park.
In 1976, the Planning Commission began emphasizing a need for swimming pools throughout all communities and expedited the construction of a swimming pool in Montopolis Park. The Montopolis Pool was also championed later that year by the Parks and Recreation Board, and the first pool development process began in December 1977 and was completed in 1979. The pool has served the community for 43 years and needs renovations.
The 2018 Aquatic Vision Plan adopted in 2018, calls for Montopolis Pool to be renovated as a community pool. The existing pool building will be lightly renovated and an additional pool building will be built to provide a family restroom and changing space.
The project will also participate in the City of Austin Art in Public Places (AIPP) program, which will commission a permanent art installation at the pool facility.
