Denver Recreation Center Closures
Effective March 16, 2020: With the announcement made by Mayor Michael B. Hancock of a pending Public Health Order, the City & County of Denver will close all Denver Recreation Centers until further notice. All centers that are meal sites will continue to serve program participants during regularly scheduled hours (Monday-Friday, 3:30-5:30pm). Learn more about this program.
In addition, Denver Parks and Recreation (DPR) has made the difficult decision to cancel all registered spring programs. Customers registered for programs will be fully refunded. If you have additional questions, please reach out to email@example.com.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding during this time.

Answer: We recommend using the online activity guide to browse through
all recreation activities—find the guide at denvergov.org/Recreation. You can also browse through activities on our online service center without registering or signing in. Click ‘Activities’ at the top of the webpage to view our offerings. DPR’s online service center can also be found at denvergov.org/Recreation.
Answer: If the activity is full, please add the participant to the ‘Waitlist’.
Staff will contact you if spots become available. You can also check the status of the waitlist by contacting the recreation center where the activity will be held.
Answer: Participants younger than the minimum age listed will need Department approval and must be enrolled by program or recreation center staff—age exceptions cannot be enrolled online. For questions, please contact program or recreation center staff.
Answer: Ensure the browser you are using is Google Chrome (recommended) or Internet Explorer on a laptop/desktop. Safari, Firefox and mobile devices are not fully compatible with DPR’s online service center. Additionally, check that all waivers and questions are completely answered/acknowledged.
Answer: ‘Save for Later’ bookmarks certain activities into one compiled list.
Adding activities to the ‘Save for Later’ list does not guarantee enrollment.
‘Waitlist’ means the activity is full and not accepting additional participants.
If you interested in an activity that is full, add the participant to the waitlist and staff will contact you if spots become available.
Answer: Activity cancellations must be completed by Recreation staff. Email PR_OnlineServiceCenter@denvergov.org or contact the recreation center at least seven (7) days prior to the start date of the activity for a full refund. Other refund policies noted on the receipt may apply.
