Payment must be received at time of registration.  No drop-ins accepted, unless otherwise stated.  We accept cash, checks or credit cards.  Scholarships available.


The Recreation Office is located at the Salida Hot Springs Aquatic Center, 410 West Highway 50. You can register anytime the pool is open.

You can call the Salida Hot Springs Aquatic Center’s front desk to register for aquatic and recreation programs. You must pay in full with a credit card at the time of call. This option is available during normal pool hours and is a great time-saver. Cash or check payments must be mailed in or made in person. You cannot be registered over the phone without payment.


Attn: Recreation Supervisor, 410 W Rainbow Blvd (Hwy 50), Salida, CO 81201

You can mail in a registration/release form and required fees. If you are registering through the mail, please make sure that you do so well in advance of the program’s beginning date so we can get you on the participant list before it fills.

Checks must be accompanied by a completed and signed registration/release form and be made out to the “City of Salida.”

REFUNDS will only be given if you cancel 24 hours in advance of the program or if the program is cancelled by Salida Recreation.

VOLUNTEERS are always needed and always welcomed!  If you are interested in volunteering, please let us know when you are available and which programs you would like to help out with. All volunteers will be required to fill out a short application.

DONATIONS are a great way to support our program. Monetary donations, as well as art/ craft supplies and sports equipment are appreciated. Call 539-5703 for a complete list of needs.
