My sister enjoyed being able to use the facilities for a few days...especially the pool. It is on the north side of the city near many motels.

It happened to be a rainy day in Durango when we went here and it did not disappoint. The lazy river kept my kids busy for hours. There was also a water slide, a zero entry pool, lap swim lanes, and two diving boards (1 and 3 meter). In addition, there was a climbing wall right off the entry way... More

OK there is a hidden gem in this town! If you have kids, even if you don't have kids , there is a great place to visit. The Community Center! They are about 5 bucks and its cheaper for kids and seniors. And there is an indoor water park! It has slides, sprays and is just a really great place... More

We regularly swim at home, and while floats on the Animas River were fun, we really wanted to get in some lap time on a few of the hotter days that we visited. $6 a person got us into the rec center pool, $1.00 each for a towel if needed, and another $1.00 for a locker padlock plus a wristband...

Thanks for taking the time to review. It sounds like you are a lap swimmer. If you have interest in having a workout provided with a coach, their is a drop-in Masters Swim program for all levels of swimmers. Thanks again, and hope you visit again on your next trip to Durango. More

Durango does a great job having this resource for everyone. From the rock crawling to the water slide it makes for a great day

Always enjoy visiting this pool when we visit Durango. I wish they would post their swim lesson hours online because once again, we had to come back later as lessons were starting when we arrived. Almost didn't get to swim because we had other excursions (which I assume are important to Durango's economy) planned.

Great time at the rec center pool! I especially enjoy the zero entrance pool that is designed for small kids. The kids have a good time and I was able to sit down in the pool and watch them play. The pool was nice to go to with the overcast/rainy day. The price to get in was great. It was... More

They welcome out of state guests. Prices are ridiculously low - $4 kids - around $6 - $8 for adults! Giant indoor pools - kids pool with huge water slide, fountains, and a lazy river! Big Olympic pools for serious swimming - diving areas, rock climbing wall, outside splash pad area. Big clean locker rooms - and a family locker... More

We stayed for a week's vacation not far from the recreation center. We used it as a break from bigger activities like hiking in Mesa Verde, horseback riding and a family wedding. Indoor pool was a nice break from the heat with many fun features the kids loved. Large looping water slide, small slides/ fountains for toddlers and a lazy... More

It is great you were able to enjoy the Recreation Center in-between other activities around town. Durango does has so many great areas and places to enjoy, and we feel fortunate to have the Recreation Center as one of those activities. More
