Take a Refreshing Dive in Austin

Swimming is a fun pastime that many Texans learn to appreciate. It’s the best outdoor activity that you can enjoy without overheating from the hot summer temperatures, and it’s great for both exercise and playtime. Our luxury apartments at the Retreat at Barton Creek hold no lack of swimming opportunities, though one particular pool in Austin stands out from the rest.

The Barton Springs Pool is Austin’s largest public swimming attraction, nestled within the expansive Zilker Park, and it’s one of the highest rated places to explore on TripAdvisor. Open all year round – with the exception of Thursdays – this gigantic three-acre pool features fresh spring water that reaches as far as 18’ below the surface; however, there are also shallow areas perfect for young children, novice swimmers, and casual wading, as well as lifeguards during peak hours to ensure swimmer safety. The water stays at a constant 68-70 degrees Fahrenheit, even during the winter, so it’s a perfect complement to the hot Texas sun. Grab a few friends and wade around while keeping up conversation, use a floaty and drift across the surface, or get your heart pumping with some intensive laps. As summer draws closer, the Barton Springs Pool will start requiring admission for visitors during peak hours: $5 for adults for single admission, $3 for older kids twelve to seventeen, and $2 for seniors sixty-two and up along with kids one to eleven. You can purchase season passes or punch cards at any time if you’re a frequent visitor.

Enjoy the best activity of summer with a fantastic pool at the Retreat at Barton Creek. Come see our luxury apartments in Austin and stop by the Barton Springs Pool before the warm days come to an end.
