There is no shortage of fun for kids, or kids at heart, at Old Town Hot Springs!
Aquatic Climbing Wall
Try our aquatic climbing wall in the deep end of the hot activity pool. This beautiul feature is fun for all ages. Challenge yourself to reach the bell up top!
The kiddie pool is a hit with young children. It has small play structures and slides. The kiddie pool is open only during the summer season and on weekends in September.
Meet Twinkle the Starfish and the Flame the Dragon in the shallow pool. These two fabulous floating pool toys got their names thanks to a pool naming contest and vote during the summer of 2014.
We have two fun playground areas. Our First Annual Fundraiser in 2013 helped us purchase the playground equipment on our upper lawn area. The second playground is in the sandy outside area of Jungle Gym Childcare.
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 2016 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.
