The first thing I want to say is that this public pool is NOT inside the Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa. It is in a separate building a couple of blocks away, and also along the waterfront. I made the error of paid parking at the hotel and was in the wrong place. The Public Pool has free parking.
The female change room was quite nice. I was impressed that there were private changing cubicles with a curtain.
The hot pool temperature is 100 degrees fahrenheit (38 degrees celsius). At first you may think this is not hot enough, but after only about 10 minutes it starts feeling too hot in the pool and you want to get out for a bit.
Most people at this pool just sit. There is lots of seating along the entry stairs, and there is benched seating along the insides of the pool that will keep you sitting in the water up to your shoulders. There are also a few jets here and there that come out at your calves.
There were about a dozen plastic lounge chairs. The complex and chairs are all indoors.
There is a tall window where you can see the lake and mountains a few feet away outside.
It is a public pool and not a spa, so don't set too high expectations. It is reasonable for the $9 adult swim. They rent towels and bathing suits too.
There is a vending machine, and a convenience store across the street. No food or drink allowed in pool.
My romantic partner and I live in Vancouver and we wanted an afternoon outing. So, we took scenic Highway 7 to Harrison Hot Springs, had a fab lunch at Muddy Waters Cafe along the waterfront, walked along the lake, then went for a hot pool swim for an hour. What a great afternoon jaunt near our home in Coquitlam (a 90 minutes drive).
