Nature Lovers:

El Dorado Springs Pool:  Take a trip North to this historic pool which has been popular since 1905.  It is fed directly from an Artesian spring and is a great day trip.  Want to hike before you swim?  Enjoy the amazing views in El Dorado Canyon.   The pool opens on Memorial Day.

Chatfield & Cherry Creek Reservoir:  Worthy destinations for a more outdoor experience.  Both have swim beaches and accommodate boats, paddle boards, kayaks and jet skis!  Sailing lessons are available at Cherry Creek Reservoir.

Confluence Park:  Picnic on the banks and enjoy the river or rent a kayak and take a run through the rapids!  This is the best "downtown" beach in Denver.


Best for Littles:

Puddle Jumper:  This Stapleton pool is open to non-residents.  The pool is designed specifically for young and beginning swimmers.   Splash fountains and pads, bubble jets and play structures abound!

Pirates Cove:  This Englewood aquatic facility has a pool, play structure, lazy river, slide and pool.  Works well for families and kids of all ages.


Best for bigger kids:

Splash Water Park in Golden:  15 minutes from Denver - the park includes a “beach”, tube water slides, spray fountains, bucket dumps,a lap pool, lounge chairs and a picnic area.  This would be a cool way to spend a hot summer day.

Water World:  This is Denver's quintessential water park with over 27 acres and over 50 different attractions!  Annual passes are available!


Adult Jam:

Congress Park Pool:  This is a Denver city park but tends to be on the quieter side.  Plenty of shade and places to picnic make this a nice day at the pool.

Boulder Creek:  Load up your friends and spend an afternoon on the river.  Rent tubes or bring your own!
