Denver Recreation Memberships

Denver Parks & Recreation offers various membership options to fit your needs. Our recreation centers and memberships are structured into three levels: RegionalLocal and Neighborhood.

This structure provides the opportunity for you and your family to choose from annual and month-to-month memberships, 15 and 30 day visit passes, discounts for family members, corporate and nonprofit organizations, CCD and DHHA employees, plus financial assistance for those who qualify and inclusion services for persons with disabilities.

Memberships and passes include access to recreation centers, plus drop-in fitness and aquafitness classes within the membership level you purchase. Each membership also opens the door to all 16 outdoor pools during the summer months. Our amenities vary at each center. Come on in, and let us help you, "Find Your Fit!"

Membership Purchase Options

(available online or in person)

The annual membership must be paid in full. Because
 full payment is required, a 10% discount off the base price is included! It's our way of showing how much we appreciate your commitment to Denver Parks & Recreation. When purchased in person, this discount can also be included with our family member discount or financial assistance. The annual membership cannot be canceled, refunded or transferred.

(available online or in person)

The month-to-month membership provides
flexibility in that you can start and stop as desired. Payment of the base price is divided over 12 months, with the first payment due at the time of purchase. Monthly automatic payments via credit/debit card are scheduled for the same calendar day as the date purchased.

When purchased in person, our family member discount or financial assistance can be applied.

The MY Denver Card is a membership specifically for Denver youth and DPS students between the ages of 5 - 18.  It's a free annual membership at the regional level.

For customers not quite ready to commit to a full year, we offer three visit pass options at each membership level: single visits, plus 15 and 30 visits.

Similar to our memberships, visit passes cannot be transferred, refunded or exchanged for credit towards a membership purchase. They have no expiration date and are valid until all visits have been used!
