Deep Eddy Park is home to the oldest swimming pool in Texas! On Saturday nights during the summer, bring your favorite float, $3, and good company to enjoy the showing of a classic movie.
Off the beaten path and one of the best pools for kids in Austin. (Great for lap swimmers too.)
Want to catch the swimmers in action? Experiment with different shutter speeds -a fast shutter speed can freeze action, whereas a slow shutter speed can blur a moving subject.
It's got cool water like Barton Springs, but it's got swimming lanes that are 33 yards long. Truly funky and truly Austin!
Went here after seeing the line at Barton. Same water source ... So much less crowded. Cleaner bathrooms.
No other way to spend a Saturday night!
Lifeguards are always ass holes. Barton springs Deep Eddy. They think they're police.
Want to teach your kid to swim and they are only around 5 or 6? Get them a pair of goggles and slowly dive for coins deeper and deeper across the length of deep eddy one summer, they'll swim by Aug!
Clean COLD water!
In the early 1900's, Deep Eddy hosted a circus show with horses diving into it (Lorena's diving horse). - Check out the mural on the Northwest side for a very cool history of Deep Eddy timeline.
Cool & refreshing!
Bring cash! Love the laid back feel compared to BS... A little more secretive.
Classic Austin spot. The water is always freezing, so be prepared for that. The lap pool can get crowded if you're into that.
Movie night every Saturday for June and July.
The mural is fabulous be sure to see it up close!
Best place for swimming!
Great people watching
Watch out for the floating bandaids and plastic bottles.
Spring water (it's kinda cold!) with lap lanes for exercise, and a great shallow end for kids and big dippers alike. Glorious. Have a Jim-Jim's water ice after your summer cooldown.
