Barton Springs Pool

Barton Springs Pool

Map
2201 Barton Springs Rd., Austin, TX 78746, United States

Three-acre watering hole has lifeguards and diving boards just like a swimming pool, but its 68-degree waters are fed by underground springs. Don’t forget your goggles: Kids can spot tangles of plants and the occasional fish under the water. Free swim, from 9 to 10 p.m., is particularly fun.
