Carla Madison Recreation Center

Exterior of Carla Madison Recreation Center

Denver Recreation Centers are closed on city-observed holidays. Centers and pools can also close unexpectedly due to power outages, lifeguard shortages, and other unforeseen maintenance issues. Outdoor pools close during inclement weather when lightning is nearby or temperatures are forecasted to remain below 65 degrees. Unexpected closures typically last several hours or less and may not always be posted online. To verify center schedules and hours of operation, please call the facility directly. 


Carla Madison is Denver's newest Regional Level Center located on Colfax and Josephine. This facility features an outdoor climbing wall and a rooftop event space with an exterior terrace and catering kitchen. There is an eight lane, 25-yard competition lap pool as well as a leisure pool with play features, a lazy river, and three 20-yard lap lanes. Other site amenities include slack lines, game tables, a climbing boulder, and dog park. Shallow Water Aerobics, Deep Water Aerobics, and Swim Lessons are offered at this center.
