Canon City Swimming Pool

I'm not sure what screams summer more than swimming at the local "watering hole."  So the opening of the Canon City Swimming Pool is the unofficial start of summer for the kids in our city.

Growing up as a competitive swimmer, I spent a lot of time at a lot of different pools.  I'm not sure that I've ever been to two pools that were the same in all that time.

But the Canon City swim pool is a great pool for a small town like we are.

The pool has a small picnic area that is perfect for birthday parties, picnics, and enjoying a little bit of shade during the hot, summer days.   This picnic area sits right next to the kiddie pool so you can enjoy some treats while watching the kids play.

The deep end of the pool has two diving boards that have pretty good bounce and allow for some great flips and cannon ball contests.  Behind the pool on the eastern side, is a large grassy area that is great for party games and laying in the sun enjoying the summer day.

And of course, there's the super slide!  How awesome is that?

The Canon City swimming pool is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day.  Lap swim is open seven days a week from 12:00 to 1:00 pm.  Open swim is from 1:00 to 5:00 pm every day and from 7:00 to 9:00 pm Monday through Wednesday.
