We walked around the training grounds to see what there was to see. We saw people on a couple of the fields but could not tell if they were Olympic competitors or students hoping to someday be competitors. It is a relaxing site with wonderful views of the nearby mountains. Well worth the time for a pleasant relaxing walk.

This was one of the most enlightening tours I've ever been on. Our volunteer tour guide was a wealth of information. He escorted us around the training center by golf cart. We stopped at each event center and he explained what went on at each site and what improvements were being made to accommodate more sports. We were ably to... More

I like to bike to the Olympic training center but to be honest there is not much to see. They have a nice center but it is really for the athletes and not for visitors.

Really a neat place. The facilities are top notch, and you can go on a guided or self-guided (cellphone) tour. There's a BMX hall of fame in the main building, and a small museum that will bring back memories for anyone who was into BMX in the 70's.

We read about this Olympic training center and we thought we might go there. It was great. There were maps guiding you on a self guided tour. You get to see Olympians practice. It was cool for all ages. Go to ARCO Olympic Training Center.

If you like sports then this place is a great stop if you are in the area. Seeing the facilities where our athletes train is great. A beautiful lake backs the property and the grounds include areas where athletes train in sports ranging from Archery and BMX to Tennis and volleyball.

My grandson and I visited Olympic Training Center. We walked around and saw the BMX course, some of the other attractions and visited the Gift Shop. My grandson was able to get an olympic logo cap a pen and a journal. He was thrilled by the items. It was a hot day, therefore we took water and limited our walking... More
