Barton Springs Pool is a recreational outdoor swimming pool that is filled entirely with water from nearby natural springs and is located on the grounds of Zilker Park in Austin. The pool exists within the channel of Barton Creek and utilizes water from Main Barton Spring, the fourth largest spring in Texas. The pool is a popular venue for year-round swimming, with temperatures hovering between 68 °F (20 °C) and 74 °F (23 °C) year round (that’s colder than it sounds; note that the “Cold Water Safety” website below advises treating any water temperature below 70 °F “with caution”).
