Unless you enjoy crowds, try to go during the weekdays. Water stays at 68 F year round. Natural pool it’s one of my favorite attractions in Austin.

The crown jewel in the Austin parks system. Natural spring fed pool. Kid's play area, train, hiking pays, picnic areas.

Cool off in refreshingly chilly water during the heat of summer. Spring fed from underground so the water is always 68 degrees F.

If it's hot out, which most of the time in Texas, it is... bring a towel to Barton Springs Pool to sun bathe on the grassy lawn or jump off the diving board. This is an iconic piece of Austin that you shouldn't miss, a local favorite.

This goes on my Nature list and on the Old Austin list because you MUST GO! You can buy a ticket at the electronic ticket booth (looks like a street parking machine) and just say you're a "resident" to save money ;) Or use my address/zip: 1904 St. Albans Blvd, Austin, TX 78745 to get the resident…

All time favorite place in Austin - natural spring fed pool at a constant 68 degrees, grassy slopes, and huge oak trees (Closed Thursdays for cleaning but free entry between 9-10 every night)

Austin would not be the same without Barton Springs especially in the hotter months. The water stays around 68 degrees year around. There are people who swim here everyday year around. This is a naturally fed spring water pool and home to an endangered blind salamander.
