    This is one of Tyler Haneys, founder of Outdoor Voices, favorite spots in Austin. It stays around 70 degrees all year round in Austin, so Tyler says it's perfect for a dip (or to stretch next to). Read more

    What an amazing urban find! Never seen anything like it; absolutely an incredible place to spend a hot day in Austin.

    Great way to spend an afternoon. $4 for non-residents. Buy a ticket at the machine, but still gotta wait in line.

    I would'nt go to the free side. The free side of Barton Springs is'nt very safe. You're aloud to bring dogs on the free side, but not on the paid side. There is a lot of Algea, but overal it's fun!

    Worth a dip on a sunny afternoon. Nice crowd and has a nominal entrance fee. Do not forget to carry a spare pair of clothes.

    An Austin gem, just dive in! Also, go through the back way, MUCH shorter line

    On warm days, dry off by sun-bathing on the surrounding hillside. Insider tip: if you like to get your workout on early, arrive before 9 a.m. and the $3 entry fee is waived. Read more

    Hop on a b-cycle on a hot day and head out to this natural spring.

    Tim Julien · February 17, 2015
  • Danielle B.

    A mix of man made and nature makes this the perfect place to relax on a winters night. Less than 10 people in the whole pool area allows you to relax on the rock and listen to the running water.

  • Samantha M.

    Best place on the lake to rent from. Customer service orientated and great trip to Barton springs from there

    An Austin must see. Bring a floatie and do some people watching. Cash only, gets very crowded when it's nice out on the weekend.

  • Meghan H.

    I like it, waters always cold, but there are SO many people and the free side is eaten up with too many unsupervised dogs.

    Meghan Hodges · November 23, 2014
  • Steven M.

    Stunning. As a tourist I do suggest walking afterwards to chuy's for margaritas & an uber back to town.

    6 times longer than an Olympic pool, Barton Springs snakes its way through Zilker Park. Training here builds endurance. You swim against waves and since it's a long pool there's no momentum from turns Read more

    A perfect pause during our trip to Austin. Grab a spot in the shade or in the sun and take a dip in the pool every so often to beat the Texas heat.
