Indoor kiddie pool in Lava Hot Springs open during the winter

The Portneuf Kiddie Cove and spa at the Lava Hot Springs Indoor Aquatic Center are open for public swim on Tuesday mornings. Also, starting on January 6, “Splash Time” will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays.

“Kids love the water in this venue. It’s warm and shallow, so even hesitant kids have a fun time acclimating. I hope parents or grandparents can come over to tire out their little ones,” said Karen Homstad, Aquatics Program Manager.

After opening in July 2013, Lava’s kiddie pool is in its second winter season. The shallow pool is the only one of its kind in SE Idaho, sloping from zero depth to 18.” The pool features 92 degree water, a big toy with slides, geysers, bubblers, a spinning tray, and a waterfall toy.

Admission is $3.50 for ages 3 and older. Kids under 3 receive a swim diaper with their admission rate of $2. Lifeguards will be on deck to provide backup to parent supervision. The 25 yard pool will not be open during Splash Time. Splash Time will be offered through May 18, 2016, the last Wednesday before Preview Weekend and the outdoor pool opening. The pool is located at 195 N. Center in Lava Hot Springs.
