Salida Hot Springs Aquatic Center

410 West Rainbow Boulevard
Salida, CO 81201


About Us:

The Salida Hot Springs is a year-round facility offering aquatic recreation and relaxation in natural mineral water.

Collected underground and piped 5 miles from the source high in the majestic Rocky Mountains, this sparkling clear and odorless water was originally enjoyed by the Ute Indians. It flows continually into the various Salida Hot Springs pools, refreshing and warming them naturally.

Colorado's largest indoor hot springs pool facility. This 1937 WPA project employed some 200 men for digging and laying the original pipeline and constructing the buildings. The facility, including the water line, has been updated several times over the years..

A 25 meter, 6 lane pool dominates a large portion of the building. At approximately 84° - 86° this pool is delightful for swimming, diving and recreational play. Two lap lanes are usually available.

Across a divider wall, a smaller 4 foot deep pool holds water at approximately 95° - 100°. The zero depth entry provides easy access. This pool is excellent for warm aqua-therapy, exercise and soaking.
