I've loved Deep Eddy forever! I came here as a kid and now I bring my kids. To the last lady who said it smelled, well Ma'am it's a natural pool and its fresh water! When the Texas heat has you beat Deep Eddy or Barton Springs are the places to retreat! It is truly a special place and I'll continue coming for as long as I live near. We drive twice a week from Hutto Texas now that we don't live in the city and I've never regreted the travel! Austin Landmark!!!!!

It's my go to pool for lap swimming. I've been doing it since the 70's and continue to meet such interesting people there!

I've lived in Austin for nine years and I just went to Deep Eddy pool for the first time a month ago. I had heard that it's ever so slightly warmer than Barton Springs (which is way too chilly for me to enjoy) so I was looking forward to finally giving it a shot. I guess I picked a less than perfect day because it was overcast and a bit grey and gloomy. While I do agree that it is closer to being tolerable, it was still pretty cold for me. I even jumped in to speed up the acclamation process. And then it started raining, so I was even colder. What made me feel better was shortly after I got in, this super buff-looking guy walked down the stairs, dipped his toes in, and made a horrific face. He then tried from another side, same thing. And then once more before he finally left after only ten minutes or so. At least I was half submerged, right? I'll try again on a typical hot Austin summer day. All in all, even though Deep Eddy might be a few degrees warmer, there's still just something about Barton Springs that's so appealing. I think it's way more beautiful, there's more room to spread out and lay on the grass, and it looks more natural. But Deep Eddy isn't without its charms. It's smaller, which many may prefer, and may be better for younger children because it has a shallow end. They also show movies there during the summer. To each their own!

Deep Eddy is an Austin gem. It is historic, quaint, and spacious. There are a ton of lap lanes as well as a bathing "beach" for waders. There are plentiful room in the bathhouse for changing as well as bathrooms. There are usually less people here than at the often packed Barton Springs. The water is not chlorinated and quite chilly. Come here for a more laid back alternative.

I didn't even get in the pool. It stunk like sewer water. The shallow end was closed so my two little boys weren't not going to be able to swim at all. It was our first time here yesterday and we literally walked in and out. We were not there for even 5 minutes and they refused to refund me the $11 I had just paid in cash. They told me they couldn't refund me the money because "that's just how their register worked and that besides there was already limited space as it was." Um, what does the space have anything to do with wanting a refund because we didn't even get in and we were only there for less than 5 minutes? This place is horrible. I will never come back and I will make sure to tell everyone I know just how poorly we were treated and how disgusting the pool smelled.

Huge swimming pool, plenty of room for everyone and then some. Great scenery. A lot of entertainment value for the kids for just a couple of dollars. Lap swimming is divided from recreational swimming with a concrete wall so no one interrupts while you're exercising. Bring a blanket and find some shade under a tree for your stuff.

Great little alternative to the hustle and bustle of Barton Springs. Nice and cold and they have Olympic swimming lanes as well which is nice when you want to go work out in very cold water on a hot summer day.

Of course 5 stars ya spoiled brats! Urban spring fed pool for $3?? It's got adult side and kids side and it's just nice. Not sure of another downtown area pool in any city for $3. For those that complain, volunteer to come clean or organize a clean day! Sheesh. They have laps set up and it's cold w no chlorine. Let your immune system shine ;)
