Barton Springs Pool Info

Cool off from ACL's hot beats at this town treasure

Give your ears a break and your body a much-needed bath by dropping by nearby Barton Springs Pool, which is fed by underground springs. A recent grounds-improvement project added an ADA walkway and more bike racks, making our town treasure even more accessible to the masses. So, jump in. At a chill 70 degrees, the water's always fine.
