    Best outdoor pool! Great views of the city, lots of space to enjoy the sun or swim and they even offer night swimming! Perfect spot to cool off on a super hot day.

    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.

    On busy summer days, go up Robert E. Lee drive on the east side of Zilker and park near the softball fields. There's a back entrance to the pool at the top of the sunbathing hill.

    So refreshing and relaxing. Drink up before you go because no alcohol or food allowed but the residents price of $3 (even if you're just a temporary "visiting resident") can't be beat.

    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

    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

    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.

    An Austin summertime favorite. This spring-fed natural pool has a year-round average temperature of 68 degrees F. Admission is $3 for adults. Feel free to bring your own gluten-free picnic!

    Loved it! I didn't know there was a free side but the paid one is in much better condition. You can pay cash or go to a kiosk outside and pay with credit card. However you need to make the huge 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!

    The best way to get in the water is by jumping in! It's not ideal but it's the best way to fight the chilly water. btw there's parking on both Robert Lee Rd or Barton Springs Rd.

    Pack light, bring a towel, some snacks, lay on the lawn and when it gets too hot, just dive right in. The cold water is nearly unbearable for only a short spell. Bring $mall bills for admission.

    It's a nice place to hang out with friends but the water is freezing! If you love to swim you will not last in the water longer than a few mins at a time.

    If you find the water a little cold, try swimming down to the weedy areas if the deep end where it's a bit warmer. If you like it chilly, the area around the diving board stays the coldest!

    Go to Barton Springs to lay on the grass. Get a tan, and refresh yourself with a swim in the natural 68 degree waters springing out of the Edwards Aquifer.
