Plan to build natural swimming hole in Houston gains steam


Three men are $30,000 closer to achieving their goal of building a natural swimming hole in the center of the city.

The Houston Needs a Swimming Hole! Kickstarter page has surpassed its $30,000 goal with three days left to donate. Jeff Kaplan and his partners are on their way to create a natural escape in an urban environment.

“It is so hot here, and there aren’t a lot of outs,” Kaplan said. “Unless you live in a fancy new apartment building or have a pool at your house, you don’t have a lot of options to jump in a body of water unless you drive to Galveston.”
