gem Favorite Zilker Park Barton Springs spill out...leading out the Barton Creek finger. Such a blast for the kids. Super refreshing spring water! The spring itself is on the upper other side of this spill out.

View from Barton Springs out towards the spill out creek finger that heads to the river.  This is a weekday! Weekends are a bit overcrowded (expect to share the space with friendly 4:20 peeps).

Barton Creek at Zilker Park...just off the trail.  Lifeguards are on duty and diving board is a fun attraction.

Barton Springs at Zilker Park... a small fee to get in (like 3 bucks). If you are on the Barton Creek Trail, this is a nice stop to eat lunch and take a cool dip.
