The Eldorado pool has been a source of summer fun for generations of families in our Colorado community. Rich with history, we're dedicated to keeping this tradition alive for future generations to come. The historic preservation of our resort extended through the summer swimming season again in 2022, and is progressing towards an anticipated opening this summer (Memorial Day 2023). The goal is to keep this pool going for another 114 years!
Aside from the roadway improvements, upgrades will be made to the pool itself as well as bathrooms and other amenities. For more updates, follow the Eldorado Swimming Pool Page on Facebook.
This pool, initially built in 1906, was in those days advertised as the largest swimming pool in the country. In 1983, the three founding partners of Eldorado Artesian Springs, Inc. acquired the resort, this grand pool and Eldorado Springs' water rights.
In July 2018, we received approval from Boulder County commissioners based on our historic landmark designation. After a long hearing in January 2020, Boulder County commissioners approved an agreement that would designate funding of the roadway to the resort. Based on this decision, roadway improvements will now be funded jointly by Boulder County, the state of Colorado and Eldorado Artesian Springs Inc.
This year, we are excited to celebrate our 40th anniversary, and, we now anticipate the grand reopening of the newly renovated pool and resort on Memorial Day 2023.

The memories held at the resort are what gives this place such a meaningful significance in our community. Known as the "Jewel of Boulder County," the historic resort has attracted the likes of Dwight and Mamie Eisenhower as well as boxing's heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey.
