This is definitely a swimming hole! Huge & full during the summer with dogs, people, and all manner of personal watercraft like canoes, kayaks & SUP. Fun, hot, dirty, cool water - get there early!

I enjoyed the facility and the atmosphere and my kids enjoyed the pool. They have showers and restrooms which were very convenient. Please note the water is not chlorinated and it is spring fed water.

When I moved here in July 1988, this glorious spring fed pool epitomized Austin for me - appreciation of natural wonders coupled with community access to it. A new mural is going in that captures the pool's place in Austin lore.

Cool (literally) spring-fed pool with grass spots to lay out. Be careful of ants. They were having a family movie night the day I was there, but we didn't stay. Pool isn't chlorinated, so that smell doesn't linger.

The water is cool, 69-70 degrees Fahrenheit all the time! The pool is spring fed so it has no chlorine which is great for the skin. There are plenty of trees to find shade from the might Texas heat. Showers and changing facilities are adequate.

Great for a hot Austin day! Nice pool...very cold water! We were on the steeper hill, so it was a bit difficult for the littles to climb and play/relax out of the water. Get there early for good parking!

Great place for kids and adults on hot Austin days. There is a hole in the wall tavern nearby that is very friendly. Lots of locals. Worth going for a cheap brew.
