Carla Madison Recreation Center

Lead Certified

This is Denver’s largest community recreation facility and the crown jewel of the City’s community recreation program. With a unique design set as a four-story structure, it offers an eight-lane pool, a leisure pool for families, a large cardio-weight room, full-size basketball court and diverse programming that promote healthy and active lifestyles. The facility also includes ample community gathering space to support a variety of neighborhood interests.

Located at Colfax Avenue and Josephine Street, the center fulfills the City’s long-standing need for a centrally located facility. In addition, the new center serves as yet another catalyst along the Colfax business corridor to help drive economic growth and transform the area into a thriving cultural and residential area.
