Can't miss Austin tradition, not fancy by any means, but pretty awesome

Worst

This place is terrible. Why? Well, no beach chairs. So no place to sit. You are never comfortable. No real place to eat. Only one junk place. If you come from Miami like I do you ...

Doesn't have it 6/28/2011

This place is terrible. Why? Well, no beach chairs. So no place to sit. You are never comfortable. No real place to eat. Only one junk place. If you come from Miami like I do you can only laugh. Women put their towel on soon as they come out of the water hiding their bodies like it was at a 15th century Catholic nun's school. And, if you dare say anything to anybody from Texas about the situation they will tell you leave instead of saying how can we improve the situation. Oh well. more

Summertime Place to Be 6/26/2010

You can't miss this place if you're in Austin during the hot summer months. It's the best place to take a dip in cool water. Barton Springs Pool is a mix of everything.. an oasis in the middle of a lush park, views of downtown Austin, and the best people-watching in all of Texas. When you're not in the water, find a spot to hang out by the diving board. You'll see some good divers, massive belly-flops, and kids mustering the courage to jump. Can't be it! Pros: The Place to Be in Summer Cons: Grass in water more

Nice but its not all its cracked up to be... 8/5/2006

It is a nice place, but i personally thought it was dirty and very stinky. Its very crowded on weekends. Not what i was expecting. maybe it was the day i went on (sunday afternoon)? Pros: nice shady trees to lay out on Cons: stinky and dirty when theres a lot of people at the pool more

Best place for cooling off in the summer heat 7/25/2006

Most of the water areas in Austin are quite warm in the summer due to the weather heating up the water. But Barton Springs is one place you can rely on being refreshed and able to hop in water that will actually cool you off. Great for kids, families of all kinds. I know someone that swears by the healing powers of the water here as well. Large enough area that even during busy days its not overcrowded. A great day outing. Pros: One of the only places with cool waters Cons: Parking is not so great more

splash! 7/25/2002

Barton Springs is my favorite thing about Austin. It is the best oasis in the middle of a hot texas summer. I reccommend! Pros: gorgeous, relaxing, cold! Cons: cold!, crowded more

Swim with salamanders 6/4/2002

I like the grassy area where folks catch a tan. When you get too hot, jump in the chilly water (I bet you jump right back out). The cool thing about this pool, is in the winter, when the air temperature is under 68 degrees, swimmers still swim in the water (it's warmer!). The weekends get crowded with teens and kids, but it's still a lot of fun. more

Refreshing 5/23/2002

Barton Springs pool is one of the most convenient places to cool off. Just south of downtown, this natural swimming pool is an excellent place to beat those Texas summers. The water maintains a chilly 68-degrees and there's a nice grassy hill to lie on and watch everyone else have fun. more
