I brought my daughter here as a surprise and we had a ball. She rock climbed for about an hour and the staff, Jerrod, was very helpful and great with all the kids. Ice skating was next and if you have your own skates, I'd advise you to bring them. We again had a great time until a face plant.... More

Absolutely love this place. A little pricey for a day pass, but you do get to enjoy all that is on offer - fantastic pool for kids play or lane swimming, jacuzzi, sauna, climbing wall included in price and some ice skating. Make a day of it, although limited food options on site. You can come and go, so jump... More

One of the reasons I love ARC is their pool. Large and windows so you do not feel enclosed. Plus if you are a Masters Swimmer like me on Mondays and Thursdays they have Masters sessions at 6pm. There is a large kids pool that kids love, love, love. Ice skating rink too! Best recreation center I have ever seen.

We needed a day off from the slopes and the kids wanted to play. The Rec Center has an awesome pool for kids - they swam for hours, did the rock climbing wall - and I got to go work out. That was great!

Just what I was looking for, with great facilities. I snuck in for the final 90 minutes before closing when entry + towel rental is just $10. Nice gym, free yoga, excellent sauna, steam room and pool.

I have been coming to Aspen for 4 years and every year I bring my kids, aged 6 and 8, to the Rec Center. They LOVE it. They spend the whole day here, swimming in the pools, riding the slide, and ringing the bell at the top of the climbing wall. It is a highlight of their visit to Aspen... More

Beautiful view, close to the city and cheap equipment rentals. If your kids are not ready for skiing, try this place (take your camera).

We were camping nearby and came here to use the shower facilities. The men's locker room had one, big community shower room with no privacy at all. My husband ended up waiting to use one of the family shower rooms, just for some privacy. Showers in the family locker rooms were okay, but I've seen far nicer ones at KOA... More
