Big Stacy Pool
Despite being a municipal pool, Big Stacy has a lot of features to make swimmers comfortable: warm water, local personalities, no fees, and doors that stay open year-round. Residents of Travis Heights frequently admit that the the free Big Stacy Pool keeps them from moving anywhere else in Austin. With so many great accommodations, Big Stacy can get crowded during afternoons or on weekends, so park early to enjoy this free local favorite.
If you're going to take a dip in a designated swim lane, make sure you ask the athletes first! Poor etiquette will get you scolded by more than just the lifeguards.
