If you have an active family, this is a great spot.There is swimming for all skill levels. There is a water slide, lap pool and kiddie area. There is a climbing wall. There is an assortment of work out machines.If you go in the morning, be sure to get your hand stamped so you can return later in the day.

We appreciate your kind review. The climbing wall is available during the week (while school is in session) from 4-7pm and from 12-4pm on the weekends. We do allow patrons to return to the facility on the same day. Stop by the front desk and we'll take care of you! More

I think is a really high quality rec center for what you pay! The lap pool is great - and it's especially nice to relax in the hot tub after laps or go down the slide! The workout machines are all newer and easy to use. My only complaint is the group fitness room - it's always freezing in there!!... More

Thank you so much for the comments. We do think it's a great place! Unfortunately, our group fitness room only has A/C, no heat, so we can only turn it on or off. Because we offer so many fitness classes (60-70 per week, depending on the season) and because we can only turn the A/C off for the slower paced... More

DRC is such a neat place for single or for families, regardless of the season. Pools, both cold and warm and summer time outdoor water play area, pool slides, exercise equipment, rock climbing walls, child care. WOW, all under one roof at a very affordable price.

Durango rec center is a small-town treasure. There is a large, well-ventilated workout room with all the equipment you could want (usually, even on a busy day), a great pool, basketball courts, a track, a climbing wall, rooms for meetings and events, games for kids, day passes, and programs galore for locals. Durango's rec center is a model for all... More

We go to Durango at least twice a year and always try and hit the Rec center. It's always clean and the front desk is helpful.
