Barton Springs Pool Info

Barton Springs Pool Info

It's ACL. The music is awesome. The famous people are awesome. Everybody's got back sweat, nobody cares, and that's awesome. But wouldn't it be even more awesome to submerge your body into a pool of 68-degree water cradled by 100-million-year-old limestone? Just for a few minutes, between sets? Or beers? Or ex-girlfriend/boyfriend sightings? Yes, it would, and you should, because you and Barton Springs Pool are both in Zilker Park today, and the two of you need to get together. It will ease your eardrums and purify your spirit. It will help keep you from passing out. It will make you less stinky. Wouldn't that be awesome?
