Swimming

Pools

Each of the five swimming pools at Black Butte Ranch was designed for more than just taking a swim. They are sanctuaries where you can relax in the sun and read a good book, create exciting activities with your family and take in the natural splendor and spectacular mountain views. When not in the water, guests can lounge on comfortable chairs under shady umbrellas while savoring food and refreshments from our Bistro and Snack Shops.

Glaze Meadow Recreation Center Pools

Glaze Meadow Recreation Center features an indoor lap pool, outdoor pool, wading pool and children’s “spray” ground. There are year round opportunities for relaxation in our steam room and outdoor hot tub. The indoor pool is also open year round. During the summer, guests at the Glaze Meadow pools can cool off or refuel with ice cream, snacks, burgers, espresso drinks and other cold refreshments from the Glaze Meadow Snack Shop.
