    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.

    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
  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    Sarah Foley · July 28, 2014
  • CollegeFashionista

    If it’s warm outside (especially in the summertime), Barton Springs is a great getaway from city life and fun outdoors location for relaxing, tanning or swimming in the spring water pool.

    Never forget to bring friends here

    Claudia B · October 20, 2013

    Go at night! Free after 9PM.

    Bring water shoes so you can walk in the river bottom more easily.

    Peter Shay · September 6, 2013
  • Amy J.

    $3 to swim and sun and you can come in and out all day with a hand stamp equals best way to beat the heat ever.

    I can't think of anything better to do in Texas in August than swim here. It's like AC for the pool.
