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.
