    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, though be aware the creek is closed from Eben G. Fine Park to the western border of the city. The City of Boulder operates three recreation centers equipped with pools, some of which are currently open for lap swimming by reservation. For family swimming, Spruce Pool, a city-operated outdoor swimming pool in downtown Boulder, and the Boulder Elks Community Pool are now open by reservation. (Just a heads up that they are booking up quickly.) The Boulder Reservoir is not open for swimming as of now.

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