Each week we strive to feature lifestyle activities and events in the Durango area. We have a wide variety of festivals, restaurants, and outdoor adventures in our own backyard. Sometimes the middle of winter can be long—especially after holidays are over and before spring and summer activities get rolling. However, one of the most dynamic places in our town offers indoor activities year-round to keep anyone inspired: The Durango Rec Center.
The Durango Recreation Center is located on North Main Avenue, and offers exercise machines, weights, an indoor track, fitness classes, and a gym for basketball or volleyball. In addition, there’s an indoor aquatic center which offers a lap pool and leisure pool area with play structures, a waterslide, and a hot tub. There is a climbing wall, café/lounge area, youth game room, racquetball courts, and even a babysitting room with childcare for when parents use the Rec Center. There’s a full schedule of classes with yoga, senior fitness, Pilates, Zumba, dance, and more.
The Durango Rec Center is truly a place for everyone, and it offers a way to stay active year-round if outdoor activities in the snow feel daunting. For a town our size, it is a facility that encompasses so many activities, and we love the convenience it offers. The city of Durango is a fantastic place to work, play, and live, and the Rec Center is just one of the many reasons.
