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.
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.
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.
Oldest swimming pool in Texas and perfect for laps! Huge hillside for lounging, sunbathing or just enjoying a great book!
Be sure to check the summer schedule for Splash Party Movie Nights, when families can float and catch a free flick on an outdoor screen. Powered by ParentsConnect.com
Classic Austin spot. The water is always freezing, so be prepared for that. The lap pool can get crowded if you're into that.
Went here after seeing the line at Barton. Same water source ... So much less crowded. Cleaner bathrooms.
Off the beaten path and one of the best pools for kids in Austin. (Great for lap swimmers too.)
It's got cool water like Barton Springs, but it's got swimming lanes that are 33 yards long. Truly funky and truly Austin!
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.
Bring cash! Love the laid back feel compared to BS... A little more secretive.
Not quite Barton Springs but less crowded. I often go here to escape the crowds.
The mural is fabulous be sure to see it up close!
Movie night every Saturday for June and July.
Watch out for the floating bandaids and plastic bottles.
No other way to spend a Saturday night!
Best place for swimming!
Swam laps for thirty minutes. Ahhh...heaven.
Cool & refreshing!
Clean COLD water!
Great people watching
