Program Updates

Boulder Parks and Recreation will be transitioning virtual, drop-in classes back to in-person classes starting this fall. All virtual memberships will be automatically cancelled and no charges will be made after August 1st.

With this transition, our Virtual Drop-in Class Pass Membership will end on Friday, Sept. 3. All classes on the virtual drop-in class schedule will either transition to an in-person drop-in class included with a facility membership or will become a fee-based, virtual registered class. An annual pass, punch card, or drop in visit, SilverSneakers, Renew Active and Silver and Fit passes are all accepted for the drop-in classes.

All virtual, drop-in classes will continue as scheduled through Friday, Sept. 3 except for two classes:

*Bolly X Dance Fitness (Mondays at 5:30 p.m.) – last virtual class was Monday, July 5 and is now only in-person at NBRC

*Gentle Yoga (Tuesdays at 9 a.m.) – last class will be Tuesday, August 17

We are excited to return to in-person programming! We want to thank you for your continued support and patience over the last year as we navigated our way through a challenging time, implemented a new virtual format and platform of classes, and delivered programming while our centers were closed and/or under capacity restrictions.
