My Denver Prime

Denver’s active lifestyle knows no age limit, and older adults and seniors are just as active as anyone.

Just like the MY Denver Card gives all Denver kids free access to Denver’s recreation centers and pools, the MY Denver PRIME membership expands free access for all the city’s residents ages 60 and older.

What benefits does MY Denver PRIME offer?

MY Denver PRIME provides Denver residents ages 60+ with FREE access to all the city’s recreation centers and pools, including drop-in fitness classes and clubs. As of 2022, the membership also offers access to the Buffalo Bill Museum & Grave in Denver's Lookout Mountain Park. This membership is for Denver Parks & Recreation facilities only and does not offer admission discounts to other cultural institutions such as museums, zoo, botanic gardens, etc.

How do I know if I’m eligible for MY Denver PRIME?

To be eligible for a MY Denver PRIME membership, you must be at least 60-years-old, a Denver resident, and not already eligible for another discount program.

The most common programs you may be eligible for are Denver Health Medical Plan (DHMP) Medicare Choice or Medicare Select. Determine your eligibility by doing the following:

  1. Denver Health Medical Plan: If DHMP is your health provider, you are eligible for a recreation center membership through your insurance plan. Call DHMP at 303-602-2111 to obtain a membership voucher. Bring the original printed copy of this voucher, your Denver Health Insurance card, and a government-issued photo ID to front desk staff at any Denver Recreation Center and they will process your membership.

MY Denver PRIME eligibility is required to be verified annually. Participants must forfeit their MY Denver PRIME membership if they become eligible for another discount program.

How do I get a MY Denver PRIME membership?

Bring proof of your Denver residency and a photo ID that verifies your age to front desk staff at any Denver Recreation Center. MY Denver PRIME memberships are not available for online registration.
Proof of residency documents include:

  • Driver’s license or Identification card
  • Public service bill
  • Lease agreement
  • Current letter from a homeless shelter
  • Vehicle registration

What if I already have a Denver Recreation Center membership?

MY Denver PRIME is only available to those who do not have a current recreation center membership. Current memberships cannot be refunded or pro-rated. If you already have a membership, please wait until it expires to enroll in MY Denver PRIME. 

I’m almost 60—can I enroll in MY Denver PRIME early?

No one younger than 60 years is eligible for MY Denver PRIME. If you are turning 60 next year, download the Find Your Fit sheet to determine which membership option is best for you in the meantime. Memberships are available on a month-to-month basis, offer discounts for additional members and can be canceled at any time.
