Summertime in Grand Junction, Colorado means it's time to take a dip. Here are six places to go swimming this Summer.

  • Highline Lake

    Highline Lake is a beautiful place where you can swim fish, kayak, jet ski and more. I've been fishing here and next time I'll be bringing my swimsuit.

  • Fruita Community Center

    The Fruita Community Center has an outdoor pool equipped with 5 lanes, diving board and a area for small children. What is really impressive is the indoor pool area. This area includes a 5 lane pool, diving board, hot tub, an area for small children, aqua climbing wall, slide, lazy river AND vortex!

  • Island Acres

    Swimming is allowed in the Island Acres swim area of James M. Robb Colorado River State Park. With a name like Island Acres, it sounds like paradise. Camping, fishing, biking and hunting are allowed in other areas of the park.

  • Blue Mesa Reservoir

    The Blue Mesa Reservoir is the largest body of water in Colorado. A few beaches include Old Highway 50 Beach and Dry Creek. The reservoir is in the Curecanti National Recreation Area and is well known for its sparkling blue water.

  • Lincoln Park-Moyer Public Pool

    Moyer Public Pool is located within Lincoln Park.This place has an outdoor pool, a huge waterslide, diving board and concession area. There's also a golf course next door.

  • Orchard Mesa Community Center Pool

    The Orchard Mesa Pool is an indoor, Z shaped pool. There is an indoor waterslide and a hot tub.I enjoy switching from the pool to the hot tub, going from hot to cold is good for you.
