The Durango Recreation Center is fantastic; especially for families. The facilities are clean and have plenty of lockers to use, along with showers, etc. There is a rock climbing wall which is a lot of fun and the pool area is great. There is a big slide, lazy river, Olympic-sized pool with swimming lanes and diving boards.

The swimming pool was incredible: large space, varied activities, well patrolled. We stayed in the pool the whole time with the kids and hung out in the hot tub. The day rate price of $6, if I remember correctly was perfect for our family.

For 6$ per person, we had access to lap pools, huge children's swimming area, lazy river, hot tub, diving area, climbing wall, exercise area, classes, and more. Outside were excellent children's activities, running tracks, and more. Please do not bypass this center as it is a sight to behold !

My daughter mastered that wall before we moved back to Florida and love to climb every time we visit. She said it helped her to get brave for real climbing!

Some of the group decided to exercise inside with all the new equipment at the rec. center and then relax in the hot tub with great views out the tall ceiling height windows.

We stumbled upon the $5 outdoor yoga on Friday morning and it was just perfect! One hour, you started off a bit chilly but warmed up quick. Bring a visor or sunglasses!

The pool area is amazing, with all kinds of activities to keep you busy in the water. From young to old. The basketball gym is quite nice as well as the aerobic and weight lifting. The cost is minimal for what you receive. The rec center brings locals as well as travelers and draws people of all ages.
