Parker Recreation Center


As a Certified COVID Best Practices Businessesand with the Douglas County COVID-19 Dial moving in a positive direction, we are able to expand some capacities and offerings. Beginning Mon., March 8, patrons will no longer need to reserve a time block for an individual workout, drop-in activities nor pool use. Group Fitness participants, including Aqua Aerobics, will continue to register for classes. All admissions will require check-in at the front desk with identification. Find required account information and facility updates below.
According to a State Executive Order, all individuals over age 10 must wear a face covering at all times inside of Parker Recreation facilities, unless in water. A medical exemption will not be considered, as it results in a direct threat to the health and safety of others. For more information, please view the CDPHE's FAQs about the mandatory mask order or visit the CDPHE website. If you are unable to wear a mask, call the Parker Recreation Center at 303.841.4500 or the Parker Fieldhouse at 303.805.6300 for possible accommodation.
