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.

For a bargain soak in a Hot Tub I would suggest a visit to the Durango Recreation Center. They have day passes for bargain rates, and even offer a significant discount to seniors! The Hot Tub felt heavenly after a half-day Rafting trip on the Animas River.

When we first moved here we would use the Rec Center regularly. However, we stopped using the hot tub because there were so many parents with young children (diaper age)...hence it's super-chlorinated. The machines are generally OK, but only a fraction of users wipe/disinfect them when done....best to do that yourself beforehand. The locker rooms and showers are high-school-ish and... More

Thank you for your feedback. We have recently installed gym wipes throughout the fitness area to encourage users to wipe equipment. The chemical levels in the spa are maintained according to Colorado State Health Codes and the spa is never super chlorinated. In August, 2014 the Recreation Center purchased state of the art Cybex strength equipment which is maintained at... More

Excellent swimming in a truly warm pool. Many of the cities in the four corners have indoor pools, but most are not quite warm enough to really be enjoyed. This pool is fantastic. Lots of fun toys for kids to ride on, a great huge hot tub, and a good temperature in the pool. Towel service and lockers available for... More
