A natural warm-water swimming pool and picnic area on the edge of a small town in Oregon’s Grande Ronde Valley. Although Cove Warm Springs isn’t a steaming wilderness soak, it is a nice place for a family swim and picnic on a warm summer afternoon. Unlike many pools where mineral water is piped in, the Cove swimming pool is built directly on top of the warm springs. Most of the pool bottom is concrete, but a 15-by 15-foot opening in the center of the pool exposes bare rock fissures bubbling warm water at more than 300 gallons per minute. The pool doesn’t need to be chlorinated, as the large flow rate of the warm springs ensures that the water in the pool turns over several times a day.
