Cook Creek Pool

Whether you like to swim, splash, slide, dive, or lay out in the sun – you can do it all at the Cook Creek Pool.  Experience the thrill of a 25-foot water slide, get dumped on by a giant tipping bucket of water, practice your swan dive and flips from the diving board, or get in a few laps. The zero-depth entry pool offers a perfect way to cool off, or wade into the water with young children.

And if you just want to relax, there are plenty of places to set up a chair and just enjoy a beautiful Colorado day.
