North Boulder Recreation Center is open for a limited recreation experience. 

We’ve been working hard to interpret state and local guidance to ensure that recreational facility operations align fully with efforts to protect public health. For pools, we also made enhancements to water safety procedures and water quality specifications to meet the standards for pools set by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Red Cross.   

Right now, operations look different than normal, but in the coming weeks, staff will be adjusting offerings as guidance allows to maximize recreational opportunities. Elements like group fitness classes, leisure pool bookings, racquetball, childcare and hours for vulnerable populations are actively being evaluated. Likewise, coaches for user groups are working closely with aquatic staff to identify solutions for organized team activities.  


The North Boulder Recreation Center pool area was designed to accommodate everyone from the youngest recreational swimmer to world-class athletes. Our leisure pool and lap pool are housed in separate rooms allowing us to create the ideal environment for both.
