Barton Springs Municipal Pool
A wonderful spring-fed lagoon to sun and swim and watch people. An iconic Austin Oasis, right in the midst of the city.
If you go to the right of the paid for gate, you get to the free part where you can actually see the springs, walk the trails, and bring your pets!
With 70 degree water temperatures year-round, Barton Springs is a haven for hippies and laid back families alike.
The crown jewel in the Austin parks system. Natural spring fed pool. Kid's play area, train, hiking pays, picnic areas.
Barton Springs Pool is a recreational spring fed swimming pool located within Zilker Park. The pool holds a constant temperature of 68 degrees. It is extremely refreshing anytime of year.
Cool off in refreshingly chilly water during the heat of summer. Spring fed from underground so the water is always 68 degrees F.
Beautiful pool accessible year-round, water temperature is 68-72F and super clear spring water. Enjoyable experience!
Unless you enjoy crowds, try to go during the weekdays. Water stays at 68 F year round. Natural pool it’s one of my favorite attractions in Austin.
All time favorite place in Austin - natural spring fed pool at a constant 68 degrees, grassy slopes, and huge oak trees (Closed Thursdays for cleaning but free entry between 9-10 every night)
Outdoor Event Space
“Zilker Park is where ACL happens, where a great Zilker Christmas Light Show is, where the Stevie Ray Vaughn bronze is. Close enough to Casa Willow and Holly Neighborhood. Google what is happening at Zilker when you come.”
“Alamo Draft house is great for a night out! Watch a movie and get some drinks and food.”
“The pink-granite building is the centerpiece of downtown Austin, perched on a hill at 12th Street and Congress Avenue. Free guided tours are held daily, starting in the South Foyer, but brochures are also available on the first floor for self-guided tours. The Texas Legislature meets every two years, so you’ll have to check the schedule if you want to see an actual session in progress.”
“Iconic music institution like the Saxon Pub, but more rockabilly, blues and honky tonk than singer-songwriter. Gary Clark Jr came up playing a weekly gig here, so don't miss the regulars”
