Buffalo Swimming Pool

Once called the world’s largest outdoor swimming pool, the Buffalo Municipal Pool in Washington Memorial Park is still a pretty big deal. If, at 393 feet by 292 feet, it is just the largest freshwater swimming pool in Wyoming, that’s still huge, and a great way to cool off in the summer. It holds more than 1 million gallons of water and is fed by the mountain waters of the Clear Creek. The pool has some history as well, constructed in the 1930s as a Works Progress Administration project. Its lifespan is featured in a display at the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum. Even before the 20th century began, the location was a popular swimming hole for residents of the new town.
