Barton Springs Municipal Pool
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.

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.”
“One of our favorite places in Austin, the Drafthouse offers great local food alongside great movies - the current shows along with old favorites.”
“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.”
“The red front doors and the solid black exterior set the the tone for this well-worn, slightly gritty dive bar. It's Internationally acclaim for helping launch the careers the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, as well as musicians from all kinds of genres.”
