A spring-fed pool smack in the middle of Austin. Do not miss an evening swim if its a full moon.
A must visit within Austin, especially in the summer. This natural pool in the center of the city is provided the always 76 degree water from a natural spring. It is fairly reasonably priced to visit. You can swim laps, jump of a diving board, bring a float, and just relax in the always cool water. Then lay out on the hill in the sun to warm up and repeat. I suggest bringing a good book and make it an enjoyable afternoon visit.
A large pool of refreshing spring water in the middle of the city?! Yas, that's Barton Springs Pool. It's a place where locals mingle with tourists, especially on weekends and when the weather is hot and humid. Grab a blanket/towel, some snacks and a book, you can enjoy a whole afternoon here.
Entrance fee from adults $3 resident and $8 non-resident, but they don't check ID
Perfect to visit during the summer in Austin. Water is very cold because it's a natural spring, but it's great in the summer sun!
Great family swimming pool. Super cold . great place to bring pets and have a family bbq or picnic
So much fun!!! I love it here during the summer and many people with positive mindsets go!
Love Barton Springs. I swim here constantly and while it may be cold it’s a beautiful place to see. Come after 9pm and it’s free, or visit during one of the colder winter months and you also won’t have to pay!
The same temperature all year round, Barton Springs is a cool summer hangout spot. It is much colder than you'd think, so be prepared.
Great place for summer. The water is so cold!!! Very refreshing for the hot weather in Austin.
So much fun! Lots of sun and freezing cold water.... what more can a girl ask for? Can't wait to go back ❤️
Its a nice to chill spot i always take my girlfriend there but its also a good place just to chill and unwind read a book or swim.
The water is sooooo cold. Which makes it perfect for these Texas Summers. It's a really nice place to hangout with the family on a hot day.
It was a blast, water is cold but we still had a great time. Make sure you bring a float!
Ok, the water is very cold so he prepared however, on a hot Texas day it's what you'll want. The very west side is great for families and "little ones". You'll to enter on the Zilker Park side for easiest access to that side. The south side allows you access to the rest of the park all day for $3, if you're a local. Lots of quaint places to stroll and sit when your done enjoying the water. Lots of fun!
I absolutely adore Barton Springs! It's one of my favorite things in Austin and it's must for any visit, so be sure to pack a swimsuit! It's a recreational outdoor swimming pool that is filled entirely with water from nearby natural springs. It's located in a beautiful park too.
Barton Springs is a natural spring fed pool. It's beyond cold but super refreshing in the dead of summer!
