For many years, the Ouray Hot Springs Pool has been the enjoyment of so many. With the reported “Therapeutic” waters from hot springs coming deep from under Ouray. It is about to receive a million (or two) dollar make over. I can remember when there were no chemicals in the pool. The city just opened the valve and the week old water ran down the Uncompahgre River. Then they opened the valve and fresh water came into the pool. That changed sometime ago and now chemicals are used and the water still comes, partly, from the hot springs near Box Canyon Falls.
The large parking lot overflows to Highway 550 parking. It is the perfect place to hang out at night, especially, during the winter months. Yes, it is open year round. The pool is one of “hundreds” of exciting and fun things to do in and around Ouray. One more reason people love to visit Ouray.
THE CITY OF OURAY HAS PLANS TO UPGRADE THE POOL OVER THE FALL, WINTER OF 2016. FOR EXACT DATES, CONTACT CITY HALL.
