Denver Parks & Recreation Resumes Recreation Center Membership Sales

Published on October 29, 2021

All Denver Recreation Centers have returned to pre-COVID operating hours, prompting residents to make the most of fall and winter by maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle. Registration for winter recreation activities opens November 9 at noon. Many popular activities such as pickleball, swim lessons, vinyasa yoga, snowshoe trips, kickboxing and pottery offer residents plenty of choices to stay active in the colder months and are expected to fill up quickly.  

“Denver recreation centers provide numerous opportunities to engage in a healthy lifestyle through fitness and educational activities,” said Happy Haynes, Executive Director of Denver Parks and Recreation. “We are proud to provide communities with quality amenities and healthy recreation opportunities in neighborhoods throughout the city.”

To celebrate the reopening of all 30 Denver recreation centers and to thank customers for returning, Individual Annual Memberships will be discounted by an average of 45% during November. Recreation Center memberships are now available for sale in-person and online. Purchasing an Individual Annual Recreation Center Membership could result in up to $170 in savings.

Three recreation center membership levels are available: Regional, Local and Neighborhood.  These tiers are based on the amenities offered and the hours of operation at each location. All memberships include access to recreation centers, drop-in fitness and aqua fitness classes, plus access to all outdoor pools during the summer months.  

Recreation Center Membership is free to Denver students, ages 5 - 18, through the MY Denver Card and MY Denver Prime for residents 60 and up. In addition, all residents within the 80216-zip code are eligible to receive a 90% discount on registrations and memberships. Residents can register for this discount at the Johnson,  Swansea and  5090 Broadway Recreation Centers. Additional information on membership options, activities, programming, and other resources are available at

Providing the community health and wellness opportunities are part of Denver Parks and Recreation’s Game Plan for a Healthy City to ensure every person has access to safe facilities and dynamic programming.
