by Annie The Natural Waterpark In Colorado That’s The Perfect Place To Spend A Summer’s Day
The kids may be back in school, but summer does not officially end for a few weeks, which means there is still plenty of time (Labor Day weekend, everyone?) to get out and enjoy this glorious time of year! If you want to spend as much time as you can outdoors, take our advice and visit this incredible natural waterpark in Colorado:
Welcome to the Glenwood Hot Springs, AKA, the world's largest hot springs pool!
Located in - you guessed it! - Glenwood Springs, the Glenwood Hot Springs was established in 1888 but was used for centuries before, thanks to the Ute Indians who lived in the area and used the water for its mineral-rich and healing properties.
Spanning a massive 405 feet long and containing 1,071,000 gallons of water, the Glenwood Hot Springs' famous pool sits at a constant 90 degrees, which is perfect for splashing around and having fun in the sun.
In addition to the gigantic pool, Glenwood Hot Springs boasts several other splish-splashing that range from other soaking pools to diving boards, a lazy river, and epic water slides!
Speaking of the latter, if you love thrills, you will go crazy for these fast and fun slides, each of which drops four stories and contains many twists and turns that will have you wanting more.
Admission to the Glenwood Hot Springs starts at $21.75 for adults and $14.75 for children ages 3 to 12.
