A Refreshing Natural Spring for Spring in Austin

spring

Spring is making its way back into Texas again, and it’s bringing warmer temperatures around with it. There’s no better time to grab the swimsuits from the storage bin and break them in with a dip at a local pool. While there are many options for swimming at our luxury apartments in the Retreat at Barton Creek, including our own beautiful infinity edge pool, there’s one spot in particular that stands out from the rest.

The Barton Springs Pool is Austin’s own natural springs and local pool, and it’s a popular destination during the spring and summer for all Austin families. It’s located only three miles away from our luxury apartments, at the heart of the Zilker Park, so you can grab a few friends and drive to the springs in ten minutes or less. The pool is an astonishing three acres in size, so there’s plenty of space to wade around even during the hottest days of the year. It’s also naturally heated, staying at a comfortable 68-70 degrees Fahrenheit, which is great for swimming at any time of year. From March 14th to April 26th, visitors can stop by the pool for just $5 per person ($2 for seniors and kids 1-11 years of age) and swim around the beautiful waters, all while lifeguards stand watch for protection. Late night or early morning swimmers can also stop by without admission fees due to the lack of guards.

Immerse yourself in the best waters in Austin at the Retreat at Barton Creek. Visit our Austin luxury apartments and the Barton Springs Pool when they reopen on March 14th.
