Barton Springs Pool and Creek

Barton Springs is widely considered the soul of Austin. In fact, the Native Americans who originally settled here believed the waters had spiritual powers.

This natural, spring-fed pool maintains a steady temperature of 20°C throughout the year, making it the perfect place for a quick dip or a leisurely swim. Set within Zilker Park's 358 acres, this is one of the city's crown jewels, drawing people from all walks of life and welcoming more than 800,000 visitors a year.
