This is a great place for kids to have fun. Hard to believe a small town like Durango has such an awesome recreation facility. It is clean and well run. Sure wish our town had something of this caliber for it's citizens. Congratulation Durango!

“Great resource for family fun”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Reasonable rates, great facility. This is definitely worth a visit to work out or spend the day with the family. They have an indoor track, pools, workout room, climbing wall, ping pong (no admission required to just play a game), and friendly staff. What a treasure for Durango, especially if the weather keeps you in.

“Great Family Fun”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

My grandkids came for a 10 days vacation visit to Durango and once they were introduced to the Durango Community Recreation Center......all they wanted to do is come back every day to enjoy his fantastic facility, especially the water slide/and play swimming area. Extremely clean and safe with qualified life guards monitoring the whole area. We had a blast and almost a year later they are still talking about it with a huge smile on their faces.

“Great Community Rec Center”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

This is a great city pool in the heart of Durango. There is a great kiddy pool, lap pool, slide, little lazy river and hot tubs (at least in the pool area). We went here because we had some down time on our vacation to Durango and found it a great way to kill a few hours with our little kids. I would say that if the kids are older than 10 years old, they might not enjoy it as much as the little ones. The main part is the kiddy pool that is tailored to those 3 - 6 years old, so my 4 year old thought this was the best part of our week in Durango.

Helpful hint - we got there early (about 9:30 am) and they wouldn't let us in the kiddy pool and lazy river area because there were swimming lessons going on, so we had to wait until 11 am to entry those areas.

“Good fun for Kids”
Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

Great pools, fun slides, and an enjoyable lazy river. A fun rock wall to boot. A little pricey for a city pool, however.
