Barton Springs Pool

Tips from locals
This is Austin's golden jewel, a gorgeous spring fed pool. The grassy banks are enjoyed by many who lounge under the big trees that surround the pool area.
So close, and so cool (literally). A constant 60 degrees and cool blue water to cool off with in the summer.
This place is one of the many examples of fresh water springs in Austin. You can swim, bring a pet, and enjoy the warm weather in a amazing place.
