Our 25-yard, 8-lane lap pool, maintained at 80 degrees, has lanes specifically available for lap swimming throughout most of the day. The lap pool is also used for swim lessons, Steamboat Springs Swim Team, school groups, Aqua Fitness, the Wibit (summer), kayak sessions, scuba training, and masters swim.

Old Town Hot Springs patrons are blessed with an open swim schedule designed to provide lap swimmers with lanes whenever feasible throughout the day. However, when a lot of lap swimmers are present at the same time, or when lap swimming is scheduled alongside another activity, safely sharing the lanes is important. For everyone’s enjoyment and safety please be sure to:
In order to accommodate the number of swimmers, sharing of the lap lanes is requested, and sometimes required. Thank you for your cooperation, and continue to enjoy the wonderful lap pool!
We update the lap pool schedule weekly and for special schedule changes.
WINTER SCHEDULE - November to April - The lap pool will close at 8 PM for winter pool covering starting November 16th.
SUMMER SCHEDULE - April to November - The lap pool closes at 9:45 PM April - November.
OTHS supports Horizons NWC.
Adults enrolled in Horizons’ Residential Services, Supported Living Services, and Day Programs have happily benefitted from the in-kind use of the hot pools. During Day Program hours, a Swim Club visits OTHS. Accompanied by trained counselors, the men and women in Swim Club visit once a week for 90 minutes, walking laps and kick-boarding for exercise. After the workout, they soak and socialize. Swim Club provides the opportunity for conversation about jobs, vacations, and relationships. For some, it’s their only unstructured time.
Horizons’ Maple Street group home also relishes a visit to the pools with staff, peers, and longtime volunteers Bob and Jane Stein. Adults who live independently within the community enjoy dropping in to see people they know—it’s a communal hub reminiscent of the gathering place it used to be.

Old Town Hot Springs is pleased to announce our 2017 Scholarship Grant Program. We partner with the Department of Human Services to allocate grants for pool admissions, memberships and swim lessons to underprivileged, economically disadvantaged or disabled youth in our community. These funds come from OTHS operating budget and are replenished by our community during the Colorado Gives Campaign in December each year.
You can make a difference in our community by donating to our Scholarship Fund. Your generous donations provide immediate funds to keep this program active for another year.
