“Kids loved the afternoon of swim and climb”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

This place is only 4.50 for the day for kids and has 2 pools, diving boards, play areas, and a climbing wall. The kids had a blast and it is a fun break from the local camping.

“Durango Rec Center”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

I love this place - two beautiful pools, one warmer than the other, lots of features for small children, a hot tub, great dressing rooms, exercise machines, a track, racquet ball courts, pool tables, meeting rooms, truly a well designed facility...Best to take out an annual pass if you'll use it more than a few times...Check out the back of the center to see the arena, the River Trail passes by the back as well...

“Best Indoor Pool Ever!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

This is not a water park. It's just a community pool. But it's the best I've ever seen and it's open all year. There's a LARGE water slide for the older kids and small ones for the little kids. A whirlpool area that the kids and adults loved. There are water guns, fountains and houses. And that's just one side of the pool. The other side has a lap pool and a 1 meter and 3 meter diving board and a rope swing. Lockers and showers were clean and convenient. And all this for $1.50 per person.

“The BEST swimming attraction in the area, for the money!”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

My wife and I and 2 grandkids went to the Community Rec Center, unlimited time (open to close if you want), for only like $14.00. Vending machines take quarters only, so you might want to pack a nice lunch. Lockers with locks are included. Family changing area, as well as men and women's changing areas. GREAT indoor slide, moving river, hot tub (very nice), lots of stuff for the kids to do. For the bucks, it was FANTASTIC !

“Durango Community Rec Center was great for kids”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We were camping in Mancos State Park, which didn't have running water so when our kids needed to be cleaned up, we took them to this rec center to play in the pool and take showers! Our kids are 10, 8 and 5 and there was something for all of them at this pool -- slides, lazy river, play for our 5 year old and an outdoor splash feature.
