The swimming pool allows youngsters and adults a modern facility in which to spend those hot, summer days. The 7,000 plus square-foot swimming pool is but a part of the complex. A 2,300 square-foot bath house contain showers, men's and women's restrooms and dressing areas, office spaces, storage space, and a concession area. With a large friendly aquatic staff, Hanna Springs Pool is a good place for individuals and families to have a great time.
Funds for the pool were made possible by a $500,000 Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission grant, coupled with a matching $250,000 grant from the Lower Colorado River Authority. Those funds were added to the city's contribution and in-kind donations to give Lampasas a first-class facility in which to beat the heat.
Hancock Park Swim Area
Hancock Park's pool is unique. It is a bit of Lampasas history, constructed in the very early 1900s, and a summertime recreation spot for every kid that grew up here since that time. Hancock Park was the original Baptist Encampment for Central Texas and people came from miles around to be baptized in the cool spring waters. It is fed by a large spring and this keeps the water at a constant cool 69 degrees year round. Texas Highways has selected this pool as one of the top ten tourist spots to stop and visit for a cool down from a hot summer day. Hancock Pool is open Thursday to Sunday during pool season.
