    Swimming in Boulder

    list of Pools Open Boulder

    Whether you want to practice your backstroke or just cool off, we've got the perfect places to enjoy swimming in Boulder. Tubing in Boulder Creek is very relaxing during summer months (read all about Boulder tubing here). For family swimming, the brand-new water park at Scott Carpenter Pool is a fantastic option during summertime. The Boulder Elks Community Pool is closed for the season. And the Boulder Reservoir has a great, lifeguarded beach and swim area that's open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.

    Boulder Falls is not a swimming spot (but does make for a refreshing visit).
