Located in Austin, this fabulous spring-fed pool provides endangered species habitat and year round swimming opportunities for those who do not mind the chilly waters that remains at 68 degrees throughout the year (or there abouts). Your first jump into the pool will take your breath away and it will continue to do so for all the remaining years that you return to visit the pool. This is an absolutely beautiful urban pool located in Zilker Park and it is on everybody’s top ten list of swimming holes. One visit to Barton’s and you will understand why many refer to this spot as the soul of Austin. Feel free to swim with the salamanders, but do not harass them – that would be a violation of federal law. After you finish with your swim you could hop over to the Ginger Man and enjoy a beer or several on their back patio.
