Deep Eddy Pool
This swimming pool isn’t just both man-made and historic, it’s also known as being the oldest swimming pool in all of the state of Texas. In fact, Deep Eddy Pool is listed in the Natural Register of Historic Places thanks to the fact that it even has a bathhouse that was constructed during the Great Depression! The pool itself began as a swimming hole in the Colorado River before it became a resort during the 1920s. Nowadays, it is known as perhaps one of the most popular swimming pools in Austin.
This particular pool, which offers two child-friendly pool areas, a four-lane/25-lap pool that measures 12 feet deep and contains a diving board, and two winding blue-tube water slides, is a popular attraction that was recently renovated by the city.
Mabel Davis Pool
Also known as the home of Austin’s very first public skate park, this Olympic-sized pool offers both recreational swimming and scheduled times for swimming laps. Additionally, visitors can also enjoy the skate park, which measures 12,000 square feet, and various walking/hiking trails.
Wet Deck at the W Austin
Swimming at this pool will also provide you with a wonderful view of Austin’s skyline, and all you need is a simple day pass for this location. These passes cost $30, and with this, you can enjoy perks such as free parking, lounge chairs, a private cabana, two outdoor showers so you can rinse off, and tanning shelves. Day passes for the Wet Deck at the W Austin are available only Thursday through Sunday.
South Congress Hotel
