Lying amidst the channel of Barton Creek, the pool utilizes the water from Main Barton Spring. The spring is also the fourth largest in Texas. Despite borrowing water from the surrounding, the pool is quite popular among tourists and folks alike. Its moderate temperature makes it a great place to take a dip year around and enjoy your heart out. Those who are visiting with family, this place is a must to come. The pool is open day long and is 18 feet deep. The admission charges differ for people according to the season hence ensure to do some research before arrival.
