Barton Springs Pool Info
Beastly heat? Torrential rain? Or, dare we tempt fate, nothing but blue skies? You never know what kind of weather will greet ACL Fest, but this much is a given: In any and every kind of weather, Barton Springs is a good place to be. Fed by underground springs and chillin' at a constant 70 degrees, it's a spot of serenity that's functional, too. Admit it. You're starting to smell kinda funky. Go take a bath in our city's restorative waters. The music will still be there when you get back.
