This place meets everyone's needs for health and fitness. There are fitness classes, clean pools, rock climbing, tons of equipment etc. We would grive 75 miles each way in the summer so my kids could play in their fun pool.

This community pool has a great area for the kids, a large pool for adult lap swims and two diving boards. Every time we stay in Durango, even though the hotel has a pool the kids always want to go here. We usually go out into the mountains early and come back in time to get a few hours of... More

I go to the Rec Center 2-4 times a day and it is almost always busy although that isn't an issue most of the time. Most of what I do are swim laps, water therapy, or classes upstairs. There is a huge variety of things to do.

I'm an older lady who loves water slides. The one at the aquatic center is wonderful. They also have a lazy river and a serious whirlpool that feels like it could suck you under, except it won't. The lap lanes are much cooler than the play-pools so you don't get overheated. I didn't use the rest of the center but... More

We attended the kayak drop in class. A few kayakers showed up and we learned some new rolling techniques. It was a very pleasant and safe environment. We will be back.

My sister enjoyed being able to use the facilities for a few days...especially the pool. It is on the north side of the city near many motels.

It happened to be a rainy day in Durango when we went here and it did not disappoint. The lazy river kept my kids busy for hours. There was also a water slide, a zero entry pool, lap swim lanes, and two diving boards (1 and 3 meter). In addition, there was a climbing wall right off the entry way... More
