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, outdoor hot tub and indoor pool. During the summer, guests at the Glaze Meadow pools can refuel with snacks and beverages at the Glaze Meadow Snack Shop or stop by the Glaze Meadow Sports Shop.
