Unless you enjoy crowds, try to go during the weekdays. Water stays at 68 F year round. Natural pool it’s one of my favorite attractions in Austin.

Cool off in refreshingly chilly water during the heat of summer. Spring fed from underground so the water is always 68 degrees F.

All time favorite place in Austin - natural spring fed pool at a constant 68 degrees, grassy slopes, and huge oak trees (Closed Thursdays for cleaning but free entry between 9-10 every night)

If you go to the right of the paid for gate, you get to the free part where you can actually see the springs, walk the trails, and bring your pets!
