Deep Eddy Pool
The water supply for the pool comes from an artesian well, drawing many to the fresh waters of this popular gathering place. A longtime favorite of locals for its sunbathing lawn and child-friendly atmosphere, Deep Eddy has a shallow end large enough for groups of people to wade in. Located just west of downtown, this is a convenient location for a morning swim. Morning hours are designated for lap swimmers. Those with disabilities may call in advance to secure handicapped access, as the stairs leading down to the pool are not wheelchair accessible.
My mom and her brothers and sisters swam there as children, I swan there as a kid, my daughter swam there .. it is very relaxing and shady during the hot summer heat. I would not say it is pretty to look at...it is an old pool. I will say that that old ugly pool is the nicest and staffed by super nice crew of folks. I like how relaxing it is there ...great place to read by the pool and great for small children.
Deep Eddy is awesome. I never fail to have a good time there. The service is great and the lifeguards are friendly. I love movie nights on the weekends in the summer. I wish all the pools in Austin were as great as Deep Eddy.
