Swimming Pool in Lone Tree, Colorado

With the advent of summer, it’s time to get outside, The Denver area has all kinds of places to swim and play. Topping an expansive list is Water World the enormous water park in the northern suburb of Federal Heights. For something unique, the 104 year old pool at Eldorado Springs is filled with natural sprig water. Broomfield Bay Aquatic Park has lots of fun features and expansive grassy area for picnicking. For folks out west, there is The Splash at Fossil Trace in Golden. The new pool and play facility in Lone Tree’s Cook Creek Park opens early this summer.

The area abounds with recreation centers, which I have been told are a "Colorado thing". Highlands Ranch has 4 huge facilities, all with pools and every type of indoor activity you can think of. The South Suburban Parks District operates a dozen great facilities, including the Lone Tree Recreation Center and the Family Sports Center near Centennial Airport. The Trails Recreation Center, located in the Piney Creek area of southeast Arapahoe County is a first class facility. Denver operates recreation centers all over the city, and Commerce City and Northglenn each have their own indoor sports facilities.
