Ouray Hot Springs Pool has existed, in some form, since the early 1800s. Even before the discovery of gold and silver in the San Juan Mountains, Southern Utes extoled the virtues of Ouray’s geothermal waters. Since 1927, the facility has been instantly recognizable for its distinct oval shape surrounded by the majestic San Juan Mountains. Despite the Ouray Hot Springs Pool’s popularity, the facility has not been upgraded in quite some time and is showing signs of nearly a century of use. In the fall of 2012, the City of Ouray organized a committee of community members to begin investigating the feasibility of repairs and renovations to the beloved Hot Springs. In August of 2015, the Ouray City Council weighed the various plans and options and approved a master plan for the Pool. Renovations will begin on September 6, 2016, with a complete closure of the Hot Springs facility (gym facilities are anticipated to remain open). The Hot Springs facility is anticipated to reopen in May 2017.
