Friends of Barton Springs Pool is dedicated to preserving the Austin landmark for all to enjoy.

We love this pool so much, we didn’t even mind braving the freezing water temps in order to keep this beloved swimming hole fresh and clean!


We work to inspire an appreciation of the rich history of Barton Springs Pool and pride in this natural treasure. We honor the pool’s sensitive environment and work to preserve and protect it so that we, and generations long after ours, can continue to enjoy the cool, clean spring waters.
