About the Salida Hot Springs Public Pools
The Salida Hot Springs Pool is the largest indoor hot springs facility in the country. Our water is gathered from an underground springs eight miles up the road, high in the Rocky Mountains. From there, it is piped directly to our pools through insulated pipeline, delivering fresh hot water continually. This sparkling clear, odorless water was originally enjoyed by the area’s first inhabitants, the Ute Indians. We now respect and enjoy this water for it natural refreshing and warming qualities.
The Salida Hot Springs Pool public facilities consist of a large 25 meter, 6 lane pool, and a smaller, hotter soaking and play pool. The large pool dominates a large portion of the building, and at approximately 84° – 86°, this pool is delightful for swimming, diving and recreational play. Two lap lanes are usually available, with mornings set aside for several lanes of lap swimming in addition to fitness classes.
The smaller pool has a zero-depth entry as well as a stair-entry, making it easily accessible. The depth gradually increases to four feet, and the temperature ranges from approximately 97° – 100°. These qualities makes this pool ideal for aqua-therapy, soaking, and young children.
Additionally, there is an ADA compliant lift that allows for easy access into either pool. Each pool features a stepped entry with handrails to further ease entry.
