Capital Campaign: It’s In the Water
What does Old Town Hot Springs mean to our Community?
Old Town Hot Springs is currently in the midst of a capital campaign to raise $10 million dollars for the essential reconstruction and improvement of the lap pool and kiddie play area. The hot pools will NOT be part of the reconstruction.
We broke ground on our new pump house in the fall of 2022. The pool construction starts on September 18, 2023. Our new pools are scheduled to open in the summer of 2024, pending no major weather setbacks occur during construction.
As Routt County’s only public swimming pool, it’s imperative that the reconstruction of the lap pool occurs to ensure that there is a public swimming pool for generations to come. Old Town Hot Springs pools support the Steamboat Swim Team, swimming lessons, master swimming, aquatic physical therapy, aquatic group exercise, and recreation fun! The lap pool hasn’t been updated since the 1980’s and the footprint hasn’t changed since the 1960’s.
We need your help! Since 1935, Old Town Hot Springs has served as the city’s recreation center at no cost to the City. Old Town Hot Springs is a 501(c)(3). Unlike many similar communities, no public money supports operations and all of the services are provided to the community at no cost to the taxpayers
What’s the Plan?
The capital campaign “It’s In the Water” will fund the essential reconstruction of the lap pool and kiddie splash area and will result in four new pools for swimming, programs, and recreation. None of the existing hot pools will be impacted and we plan for them to stay open throughout the construction.

Old Town Hot Springs has recognized the importance of water as it relates to rehabilitation of injuries and those with limited mobility. In addition to group exercise classes benefiting from this, OTHS trainers have been using the water at Old Town Hot Springs as part of their clients’ rehab and training services.
