AP Breaks Ground on Apex’s Fitzmorris Park Center & Pool and Secrest Recreation Center


Arvada, Colo. (August 31, 2017) – On August 2 and August 23, Adolfson & Peterson Construction broke ground on the Apex Fitzmorris Park Center & Pool and Secrest Recreation Center projects respectively. Both ceremonies marked the careful collaboration and hard work of three community partners: Apex Park and Recreation District, the City of Arvada and Jeffco Public Schools.  

In attendance at both events were members of Apex Park & Recreation District, Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture, Jeffco Public Schools and the City of Arvada, including Mayor Marc Williams.

This project includes building two neighborhood recreation centers simultaneously. The 8,500-sf Fitzmorris project includes a six-lane pool and a small weight room and community/aerobics area.

The 21,521-sf Seacrest project requires phased construction to leave the current pool and teen center open onsite until the facility is finished. The completed facility will include a small weight room, community/aerobics area, teen center, a small gym, locker rooms and a therapy pool. The existing swimming pool and inline hockey rink will remain.

“It’s been a goal of our citizens for a long time to be able to bring an outdoor pool and a recreation center to this part of the community”, said Mayor Marc Williams. “I’m so proud of the three partners that came together to make this happen and, most importantly, proud of the citizens of Arvada who were able to say yes, we need this, we want it and we will support it.”

Both projects are set to complete in June of 2018.
