Glenwood Hot Springs Pool: In A League Of Its Own

According to Glenwood Hot Springs VP and CFO, John Bosco, “We call ourselves a pool with a hotel.” That’s because when you arrive in town, the first thing you see upon exiting Glenwood Canyon is the world’s largest mineral hot springs pool. The “big” pool, as it is called, contains over a million gallons of water and is bathwater warm. The smaller “therapy” pool holds 91,000 gallons of water and hovers around a muscle-soothing 104°F.

So, just how big is the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool? The main pool is 405 feet, that’s longer than a football field; at its widest point it is 100 feet across, longer than a professional basketball court or the distance from home plate to first base. Suffice it to say, Glenwood Hot Springs Pool is in a league by itself when it comes to swimming pools.

It’s also a high scoring destination for families in particular. With two waterslides, a diving board, a kiddie pool, mini-golf, soft serve ice cream cones and temporary tattoos – it’s a winner with kids. Parents like the comfort and convenience of staying at the Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge where pool admission and a full, hot breakfast are always included in the price. Amenities like the award-winning Spa of the Rockies, a swimsuit and sundry boutique, an athletic club and plenty of complimentary lounge chairs on the deck surrounding the pool make Glenwood Hot Springs a vacation home run for the whole family.
