A great place to chill out, cool off and to swim and get to know the fish! Water is a constant 70f approximately therefore perfect for those hot summer days.

Taking the heat out of the day, this was a fabulous place to chill and cool, in natural springs.

The entire park is gorgeous - but Barton Springs is the jewel. Perfect for families with children of all ages, romantic for couples, and funky on full moon summer nights !! Water always cold & clear. I've been coming here since I can remember myself, then when I had children, and now with a granddaughter. We lay on the hill to sunbathe, get nice & hot & then jump off the diving board into bliss !

If you love looking at Austinites in their element, visit this pool. The water is outrageously cold and hard to get used to, but the view makes up for it all. Finding a spot to lay out can be tricky during the peak season because of the crowds, that's a drawback for me.
