Recreation around Salida

One gem in the Salida community is our Salida Hot Springs Aquatic Center. It is a year-round facility, offering recreation and relaxation in natural mineral water. The hot springs water is collected underground and piped about 8 miles from the source, high in the majestic Rocky Mountains. This sparkling, clear and odorless water was enjoyed by the Ute Indians. It flows continually into the Salida Hot Springs pools, refreshing and warming them naturally. The Aquatic Center offers swim lessons, arthritis water therapy, a water safety instructor certification course and adult coached swim sessions. They even offer kayak roll sessions to keep you sharp during the winter months.

On October 16, the Aquatic Center will reopen its famous private soaking pools. You can enjoy soaking in privacy in the hot mineral spring water. The water is sparkling clear and odorless. The Ute Indians believed it healed mind, body and spirit. Minerals in the water include Silica, Aluminum Iron Oxide, Sulphate, Calcium, Bicarbonate, Potassium, Chloride and Sodium.
