Fun Public Pool

Barton Springs Pool is located within Zilker Park in Austin's Barton Springs neighborhood. The huge pool spans more than 3 acres and maintains an average temperature of around 70 degrees year-round thanks to being fed by an underground spring.

The pool is actually a part of Barton Creek that has been transformed into a public swimming pool, even while maintaining the natural landscape. There is plenty of parking in the dedicated parking lot. There is an entrance fee payable for out-of-towners, but if you visit the pool between 5am and 8am, or between 9pm and 10pm, admission is free, but there is also no lifeguard present during those times.

Utrip Tips

*If you go from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., you don't have to pay admission. There also won't be a lifeguard, so be careful!
