Montrose Community Recreation Center
Montrose Community Recreation CenterMontrose, CO 2018
The Montrose Community Recreation Center is the outcome of nearly a decade of planning and community-support building by the Montrose Recreation District. After a public vote approved a sales tax to fund the infrastructure project, the district moved ahead with designing a center that has something for every age and interest.
The new center replaced an existing aquatics center that was the only public
indoor recreation facility for families and community members. To expand the
available programming for residents, the 80,103-square-foot design is equally divided between the building’s aquatics, sports and fitness programming components. Key features include a 5,500-square-foot leisure pool, a 25-meter competition pool, three gymnasiums, a climbing wall, a family game
area, an indoor play space, a fitness area, racquetball courts and a walking track.
The track has three options for fitness users, including a flat section surrounding the fitness center, a hill track section surrounding the three gymnasiums and a stair track section, which utilizes the existing
building stairs to create a two-level track that circulates through the facility. The new competition pool is the largest public pool on Colorado’s western slope and is designed to host both recreational programming and competitive swimming.
Moreover, the new facility is the largest recreation center on the western slope and provides opportunities for indoor recreation that complement the variety of outdoor recreation activities for which the region is known. Since opening in 2017, the center has surpassed all expectations for membership
and usage and is a new focal point for community gathering and wellness.
