Within Zilker Park's 358 acres lies one of the crown jewels of Austin - Barton Springs Pool. The pool itself measures three acres in size, and is fed from underground springs with an average temperature of 68-70 degrees, ideal for year-round swimming.
On a hot summer day head over to Barton Springs to cool off in a spring fed pool that stays 68 degrees all year around! Protip - if you're looking for a free option, check out the other side of the Barton Springs Dam
An artisan spring! Water is pure and cold year round, a perfect place to read a book, sunbathe and escape the heat at about 65F. Swimming area is about 3 acres in size.
