The Salida Parks and Recreation Department has decided to temporarily close the Salida Hot Springs Aquatic Center. The closure will start at 7:30 p.m. today (Nov. 20) and is scheduled to last until Nov. 30.

The decision was made after reviewing the most up to date public health orders from the governor, local public health orders and the unfortunate uptick in COVID-19 rates in Chaffee County, according to a press release.

The Salida Parks and Recreation Department encourages everyone to recreate safely outside as much as they can during this time. Parks, trails and open space are still open as alternatives to the aquatic center and indoor recreation programs.

For more information, people can call 719-539-6738 or email hotsprings@cityofsalida.com
