History

Established in 1983, the Carbon Valley Park and Recreation District is a special district covering roughly 45 square miles, including the communities of Frederick, Firestone, Dacono and rural areas that surround the Tri-Towns in Colorado. These communities are strategically located along the Front Range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, just east of interstate highway I-25 and approximately 25 miles north of the state capital city of Denver. These communities have benefited from substantial growth of the region in the past 10 years, and anticipate significant growth in the future.

The Carbon Valley Park and Recreation District strives to increase and enhance recreational opportunities by providing a variety of quality programs and activities for the residents of Frederick, Firestone and Dacono.

Through the management of two facilities, the District has offered new as well as traditional programming. The main recreation facility is a 50,000 square foot center that hosts a 25 yard, six lane lap pool, an activity pool with amenities such as logs, lazy river, 18 ft. slide, and a kid’s splash pool. The aquatics area also offers a steam room and a hot tub for guests. Outside of the pool area the facility houses a dance studio, two gymnasiums, cardio fitness studios, a state of the art weight room, a child care facility and meetings spaces. The 2nd facility is across the street and it houses the District’s Gymnastics Center and Active Adults (55+) Center.
