“We go here often!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

The wee bugs love it and we feel like it is one of the cleanest parks I've ever been too! Really enjoy it and you will too. It's one of the first parks we've seen that features 'musical' instruments built in as toys. Awesome!

“Loved to death”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Traffic, no parking, dead grass and off-limits zones. The park has been loved to death unfortunately. I can only hope the City will consider turning the park back over for the enjoyment of residents and visitors instead of selling it out for special events.

“Barton Springs is beautiful.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Large park with a train that takes you around. Be aware that the train ride will shut down early if there aren't too many people around. The natural waters of the Barton Springs pool are wonderful. Its incredible to see a natural pool the size of more than two Olympic pools. Its just $3 apiece to walk down to the pool area which is fenced off. Even if you don't wish to swim, its worth it to just go down and walk around.

“Always Awesome When Flowers and Plants Bloom.”

I'm a photographer and love to capture the small world inside plants and flowers that most people don't see. Highly recommended.

“Great open area with plenty of walking!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Clean, very large park in the heart of the downtown Austin. Open air and plenty of green! Park is on both sides of the street. Free parking!
