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

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

Indoor swimming, jogging track, workout equipment. Locker room has wooden cabinets and too many people slam their lockers. A few people, homeless who get in free and regulars, never wash their workout clothes so sometimes it smells yuky but that is not the Rec Center's fault. Very reasonable admission and membership; plenty of parking.

If you need somewhere for the kids to go while you are needing to relax, this is the pplace. Winter or summer, and it is not expensive - at all. Our teenagers had guests with them and they loved this place - they got to hang out, play basketball, go swimming - on and on - all indoors. In the... More

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
