Description:

Arguably one of the most iconic destinations in Austin, Barton Springs Pool epitomizes fun in the sun. On average, this spring-fed pool is a chilly 68 degrees, perfect for Texas heat. Gently sloping grass knolls surround this urban pool, allowing for sunbathing and lounging. The vibe here is friendly and it is not uncommon for an impressive dive off the diving board — be it the graceful arc of a talented athlete or the humble plop of a young kid — to earn the applause of the watching crowd. A large part of the 1,000 feet pool has a natural bottom (read: seaweed-like grass) so floats and noodles are a good idea. Barton Springs Pool is closed every Thursday from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. for maintenance.
