“Beautiful facility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

We went for a swim meet and was thoroughly impressed. Building is recent, pool is very nice and great for little kids. Excellent climbing wall. Easy in town location and a good rainy day option. I would have liked for a swimsuit extractor in the locker room.

“nice rec center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were staying at a camp site at Vallecito Reservoir without showers, so we visited the rec center in Durango. It has a good pool for laps and for kid playing. The showers are private and quite nice. It is easy to get to the rec center and plenty of parking. And, there are good restaurants nearby, easy walking distance.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
