It’s a beautiful day to play outside. And you’ll feel like a kid again at the Springs today as you basically learn to fly. No partner needed. And pool admission is free during the winter!

When inside the Barton Springs fence, please abide by these common-sense rules so we can continue to enjoy this brilliant outdoor acro location:

– No acro on beach towels or the ground. Be sure you’re playing on puzzle mats or a thick yoga mat.

– No standing acro, no handstand canes, and no pops where base and flier lose contact with each other. You’re welcome to go outside the fence to practice those skills. (Get a hand stamp so you can return inside.)

If you see someone breaking the rules, kindly inform them!
