Upgrades in Full Swing at Carpenter Pool, Boulder Res

Both Scott Carpenter Pool and Boulder Reservoir dove into construction on their new and improved facilities this summer. Sites saw construction crews mobilize, grading work happen, facilities be demolished, and new structures start to take form.

Stay-tuned for news on 2020 grand opening plans while tracking the progress on both projects at

Boulder Reservoir

The popular Boulder Reservoir is getting a face-lift with replacement of the existing administration and bathhouse facility with a new Visitor Services Center. The new facility will replace the existing bath house and administration building providing an enhanced guest experience as well as improved functionality for reservoir operations.

The good news is the reservoir has been open this summer through construction. We just ask that you pardon the dust as work continues. Please note that swim season ends after Labor Day at the reservoir.
