Barton Springs is a natural river fed pool that is 75 degrees year round. I swear it's a fountain of youth and my skin glows every time I swim there. It's also top clothing optional on one side and hippie friendly.
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)
If you go to the right of the paid for gate, you get to the free part where you can actually see the springs, walk the trails, and bring your pets!

Free guided tours are held daily, starting in the South Foyer, but brochures are also available on the first floor for self-guided tours.
