After almost a century of use, the Ouray Hot Springs Pool is about to undergo a multi-million dollar renovation. After three years of input from community interest groups the new pool facility is sure create lasting memories for future generations to come.

While the historic oval shape will remain, every other feature of the pool will be getting a complete overhaul, from the leaky infrastructure to new soaking pools, zero entry areas, waterfalls, lap lanes and a climbing and diving platform. A new bathhouse will follow the pool renovation in the fall of 2017.

The City of Ouray plans to have all renovations complete by May 2017, close to the official 90th anniversary of the pool: the original opening day was July 4, 1927. Click here for information on this new era for the Ouray Hot Springs Pool.

Other public hot springs in the area include the vapor caves of the Wiesbaden Hot Springs Spa & Lodgings and the naturally landscaped pools at Orvis Hot Springs. Guests at the Twin Peaks Lodge & Hot Spring and the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs can also enjoy private hot springs during their hotel stay. Stay in our valley and soak to your heart's content!
