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 parksandrecreation@denvergov.org.
