AUSTIN’S SPRING FED GEM-BARTON SPRINGS POOL
Within Zilker Park’s 358 acres lies one of the crown jewels of Austin – Barton Springs Pool. Three acres in size, the pool is fed from underground springs and is, on average, 68 degrees year-round. Over the years, Barton Springs Pool has drawn people from all walks of life, from legislators who have concocted state laws there to free-spirited, topless sunbathers who turned heads in the 1970s. Robert Redford learned to swim at the pool when he was five years old while visiting his mother’s relative in Austin. Today, Barton Springs still attracts a diverse crowd of people.
