The Recreation Division offers more than 800 ways for you to play each year!  From fitness classes, art workshops, senior trips, sport leagues and summer camp to martial arts, dance, swim lessons, inclusive programs, licensed preschool and more, we've got something for you!

The Division includes programming and services offered at the Wheat Ridge Recreation Center, Active Adult Center, Anderson Pool and Gym and many of the City's neighborhood and community parks.
