6th Avenue West Pool

400 Holman Way, Golden, CO 80401
303.278.1000 | Park Info

Sadly, 6th Avenue West Pool will not open for the 2021 season.

While preparing the pool for summer operations, a substantial leak was discovered and a sizable amount of water was lost.  Efforts were made to find temporary repair solutions, however cost, length of time for repairs, and uncertainty if the repairs would ultimately remedy the problems led to the closure decision.

6th Avenue West Pool opened in 1974.  The pool structure and plumbing are original from construction, dating them at nearly 50 years of age.

Since 2019, Foothills staff and Board Members have been investigating options to renovate the aging site.  In early 2021, planning began for construction concepts and cost analysis.  At the May 25, 2021 Board Meeting, the Board concurred with staff’s recommendation to close the pool for the 2021 season and to focus efforts on the designs and renovation for an updated 6th Avenue West Pool.

Although, the site couldn’t hold out for one more year of splish-splashing fun, we do look forward to unveiling a renovation concept soon!
