It's a great place to cool down in the Texas heat!! The water is refreshingly cool and a great place to hangout with friends and fanily.

We loved Barton Springs. We went during the week (Friday) so it was not crowded at all. The water was a great temperature and it was very relaxed.

I went there with my son and sister. What a great place! If you are a swimmer, you are for a treat! Water clear, clean and perfect temperature all year 65-68F
You can also walk around, the trails are clean and perfect to enjoy a nice jog or walk!

Simply spectacular, this beautiful spring feed natural pool over 1000’ long is my favorite public pool in America. The cool temp is perfect for active swimming especially on a hot day. Great facilities with lots of parking. I love the huge size and tapered depth.

Great place close to town if you are hot and need to cool down in the pool or just relax in the park. No entrance fee while we were here but think that was due to off season or the restoration ongoing.
