Ken Caryl Ranch Pools
I get it, lots of Denver area neighborhoods have a community pool. Not many have 3. And very few if any other than Ken Caryl Ranch have 3 unique outdoor pools! Weather permitting and assuming the construction on the fabulous new upgrades (including a new splash pad!) are complete, the pools will open like always on Memorial Day weekend.
Ranch House Pool
The Ranch House pool is located in the Ken Caryl Plains, and is the competition pool for the Ken Caryl Lightning Swim Team. Many Ken Caryl residents can easily walk to the pool, which is set up with a toddler wading pool, and shallow kid’s pool, and a competition pool with a diving board. Just outside of the pool gates is a great playground with equipment for kids of all ages, plus some BBQ’s and picnic tables, making the Ranch House pool a great place for a family day.
The Ken Caryl Community pool is the “fun” pool. A brand new splash pad is being built, there’s a shallow kids’ wading pool, a lap pool, and an area with a diving board as well. Most fun of all is the twisting water slide that is every bit as much fun for parents as it is for kids. The Community pool, located just inside the entrance to the Ken Caryl Valley, is the best pool for the kids and their friends to get together for a fun water-filled play time.
The Bradford pool is what I refer to as the adults’ pool. Located in the North Ranch of the Ken Caryl Valley, the Bradford pool doesn’t have much in terms of fun for the kids. There is a wading pool, but this is mostly for the adults who want to lounge by the poolside in peace with the gorgeous red rocks making the backdrop. I compare the Bradford pool to your typical backyard pool.
With all the Ken Caryl pools set to open tomorrow, I can’t wait for the unofficial launch of summer. There’s something about a community where you can meet up with your friends and your kids’ classmates at the pool to enjoy the summer months! Which is your favorite pool to relax in the summer?
