Scott Carpenter Pool
Boulder's only 50 meter pool -- great for both elite athletes and recreational swimmers. Take a ride down the slide or jump from the springboard. Six lane 50 meter pool with temperatures between 80° and 82°, two one-meter spring boards operated during open swim hours, large slide operated during open swim hours.
Scott Carpenter Pool is closed for the season. The 2018 season open date will be posted when it's available.
The final concept plan for the pool facility represents what is desired most by the community, user groups and stakeholders.
In order to increase parking availability for park and pool patrons, the Scott Carpenter Park parking lot has a 3-hour maximum parking limit from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and is patrolled by city staff for violations.
We will issue rain checks if the pool closes due to weather for more than two hours before 5 p.m. Rain checks will not be issued after 5 p.m.
