I loved visiting Barton Springs Pool. I found it to be such an unique place. Great day for a dip on a hot day.

Swam here when in Austin. You can interact with others and enjoy, or you can float & relax by yourself. Fun time # 1 Texas water whole... I believe it was $ 3.00 to get in! Lots of area to lay out for Sun or Shade!

If I lived in Austin I would be here all the time. Great swimming lake and nice walk to find it (long but nice) this is a definite must if you are visiting Austin and a great way to prepare your body for all the two stepping and bbq.

Relaxing way to spend the afternoon on a hot Texas day. Grab a spot in the shade (or the sun if you're working on your tan), lay a blanket or a towel down in the grass, and cool off in the refreshingly chilly spring water! Diving board for the kids and young at heart, or do laps in the long, rectangular body of water. Great place to hang out with friends, or go just on the other side of the fence to "barking springs" with your pooch! A must do!

It was under construction in Dec, but there were a few people still swimming. The museum area is good to be able to see how much water in the Austin area goes into this spring. Very interactive.
