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.
Pending funding, we plan to break ground in fall of 2022 on our pump house. The pool construction will start in late summer of 2023. Follow our construction page for the most up-to-date information on 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.

In late 2018, Old Town Hot Springs began a partnership with UCHealth at Yampa Valley Medical Center. The organization now has a satellite office for their SportsMed physical therapy department at Old Town Hot Springs and staffs physical therapists at various times throughout the week who take advantage of the water.
