Recreation Centers

Aurora Parks, Recreation and Open Space Department (PROS) is excited to announce that Moorhead, Beck and Central Recreation Centers reopened on Monday July 6, 2020.

We appreciate your understanding and patience as we all continue to work through this difficult period together.

The health and safety of our guests and staff is our top priority. Please be aware of the following modifications which are all based on guidance provided by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment which can be found  here

PROS is using a phased approach to reopening indoor/outdoor spaces and programs that complies with the current guidelines and adheres to strict safety protocols for both guests and staff. We are diligently working to keep the community and staff as safe as possible by implementing reduced facility capacities, limiting gatherings, enforcing social distancing guidelines, enhancing cleaning and sanitization efforts, and requiring face coverings.  

Please continue to check your email, this website, and social media for updates. We appreciate everyone’s patience, understanding and support as we work through this process.

Please note that this information is subject to change as necessary.
