We’re planning to increase access to recreation in Boulder Parks and Recreation Department facilities while still staying safe and following Boulder County Public Health guidelines.

Changes listed below will be in effect on Thursday, April 1.

As a part of the shift in operations, and knowing the popularity of aquatics amenities, lap lanes will be open to two swimmers per lane to accommodate more community members. The swimmers in the lap lane can be from the same or different households. Each swimmer must have a reservation.

Facilities will still offer some individual lap lane swim times for at-risk populations during specific days and times.

In addition, community members will not pay in advance when booking a reservation online. After booking your reservation, community members scan their membership cards or pay once they arrive at the recreation center.

South Boulder Recreation Center will start to allow daily "drop-in" recreation facility use for non-pool areas, instead of exclusively reservation use. The Ride Indoor Cycling, Lap Swim and hot tub use still require reservations.

Reserve your fitness and fun!
We are pleased to welcome you back for:

  • Lap Swimming
  • Leisure Pool
  • Drop-in Fitness and Mind Body Classes
  • East Boulder Community Center
  • North Boulder Recreation Center
  • Tennis Courts
  • To stay safe, we require advance reservations for everything at the Boulder Reservoir, Spruce Pool and recreation centers - amidst the ongoing pandemic, reservations help us manage capacity. We are so glad to see so many of you (at a distance) back in the facilities!
