Journal ATX: Full Moon Swim and Journal

May 5 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Truly what’s better than writing your thoughts to paper and then taking a plunge with old and new friends to welcome in the new summer season? Journal ATX is hosting our second Full Moon Swim and Journal. Journal ATX is a local group here in Austin Texas founded on the premise of making close friends while engaging in fun activities.

This event will be free for all attendees! The only entry requirement is the $5 fee to enter Barton Springs Pool. We have an Eventbrite page so you can reserve your free seat!

We will start journaling promptly at 7:10! I ask that everyone be mindful of the start time since we’ll be hosting an ice-breaker activity before we jump into journaling! We’ll take the plunge right after sunset when the moon comes out – most likely around 8:30! Barton Springs Pool closes at 10 so we’ll be heading out by 10!

Anyone and Everyone is invited! Bring your friend, bring someone you’d like to get to know better, or come solo and meet a ton of great folks!

So what should you bring with you?

– A blanket to sit on

– A towel to dry off post-plunge!

– A journal or notebook to write with!

– Writing supplies (pens, pencils, markers) or stickers and anything else you like to journal with!

– Wear your swimsuit! (If you don’t want to plunge, you can also come for just the journal portion!)

– Prepare to have a good time and howl! Barton Springs on Full Moon Nights brings in such a friendly and awesome crowd.


Where should I park? : There is free parking at the South entrance of Barton Springs! Otherwise, there is a ton of metered parking at the North entrance. Even better idea to carpool with friends!

Where will we meet you? : I will set up on the south side of Barton Springs. Just enter through the South entrance, turn right and there will be a big patch of green grass. I will post photos of our blankets and where I am the day of on our Instagram stories @Journal_ATX !

Do I need to reserve a ticket? : We’re asking for everyone to reserve a free ticket on this Eventbrite so we can have a proper headcount and keep an eye out for anyone struggling to find us or running late! If you cannot come any longer, we’re asking for you to cancel your reservation for us and we hope to see you at our next event!

Can we bring food? : Barton Springs Pool does not allow open food – due to fire ants. So the only thing you are allowed to bring is drinks in water bottles! I may bring some snacks for everyone to have on their way out!

So excited to see everyone there!
