Barton Springs Pool, Austin

4.4
#2 of 229 in Nature in Texas
Nestled within Austin's extensive Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool represents one of the city's most popular recreational areas. Fed by underground hot springs, the pool maintains a temperature of around 20 C (68 F) year-round. You can join thousands of Austin residents who flock to the pool's 1.2 hectares (3 acres) of warm waters for a swim regardless of skill level, as the swimming area offers depths ranging from ankle-deep to 5.5 m (18 ft). Watch carefully for the Barton Springs salamander, an endangered amphibian found only in the surrounding aquifers.
