Temporary Closure of Facilities

Out of an abundance of caution and to keep our residents, visitors and employees healthy, all Foothills Park & Recreation District facilities are closed to the public. In an effort to comply with health agency recommendations and the direction of Governor Polis, we are doing our part to facilitate social distancing.

 

Foothills Park & Recreation District facilities will now be closed through April 30.

Recently, Governor Polis issued a public health order that all restaurants, bars, gyms, performance and music venues, movie theaters and casinos close for normal, public use for 30 days.

In compliance with this health order, all Foothills facilities will remain closed through April 30, 2020. During this time, staff will continue to work closely with the County and State Health Departments and the Governor’s Office to assess the situation.

Foothills Facilities include:
Ridge Recreation Center
Peak Community & Wellness Center
Lilley Gulch Recreation Center
Edge Ice Arena
Foothills Fieldhouse
Foothills Sports Arena
Batting Cages at Clement Park & Schaefer Athletic Complex

All classes will be pro-rated and credited back to your account.  You will receive a follow up email from our programming staff regarding credits for specific programs in which you or your family are registered.  Please be patient for this follow up communication as our workforce is dispersed.

Rentals and permits will be refunded.

Valid passes will have their expiration dates extended based on the number of days our facilities were closed.  This will happen at a later date and you do not need to contact us.

Although our facilities and golf courses will be closed to the public, some of our essential staff will continue working at our parks, facilities and golf courses to maintain our assets.  Staff will be complying with the order regarding staff reductions and alternating shifts, and will be practicing social distancing and hygiene protocols while working.

 

Golf Courses closed March 26 – April 11, 2020

Due to the stay-at-home order issued by Governor Polis, Foothills Golf Course and Meadows Golf Club will close to the public effective Thursday, March 26.  The orders will keep the golf courses closed through April 11, 2020.

 

Foothills Parks will remain open to the public with restrictions per the State’s order.

Amenities within parks that could be considered public gathering places are closed.  This includes amenities like: basketball/tennis courts, playgrounds, shelters, skate parks, etc.

When utilizing parks, always practice social distancing. The CDC guidelines state that the virus can live on a variety of surfaces and it’s recommended to not touch surfaces on which the virus can live and if you do, please use proper handwashing techniques or use hand sanitizer. Even though you are outside, please keep the community safe by following the same guidelines as other public spaces:

  • If you are sick, do not visit parks and public areas
  • Practice social distancing, even in parks and on trails
  • We expect all park visitors to adhere to public health guidelines and NOT gather in groups larger than 4 until further notice
  • Bring your own hand sanitizer and/or hand washing supplies
  • Bring your own drinking water
  • High-risk visitors should use discretion and/or follow the recommendations of your health care provider for outdoor recreation

Our outdoor spaces are being used at an all-time high.  We are happy to see people getting out to enjoy physical and mental wellness activities, but please do your part to help keep our outdoor spaces clean for our entire community.

  • Leave no trace, pack out what you bring in
  • Utilize trash receptacles while enjoying park use. Please do not bring trash from home to dump into trash receptacles. 
  • Always keep your dog on leash
  • Pick up your dog’s waste and dispose of it in a trash receptacle
