Even though I am a resident of Northglenn, I prefer this facility for their exercise equipment. There are so many machines and TV's with rarely a wait, unless you are like me, and need a specific machine located where I can watch CNN.

So, you can join as a Thornton citizen, BUT, even if you don't live in Thornton, you can pay a visitor fee and use the facilities. The indoor pool is a site to behold and your family will love you for taking them there! Also, out behind the Rec Center is the most outrageously fantastic FREE SPLASH PARK and PLAYGROUND... More

I do Silver Sneakers classes here and they are great. Suzi and Tracy make your efforts pay off. They also have a good selection of machines and pool. The hot tub after really hits the spot.

Our baseball league does meetings at this facility and I have done some birthday parties, some days are good, some days are not. Some of staff helpful, some don't give a dam.

Wow! What a beautiful park. This is a great location for families. During the summer, they have paddle boats, a fountain for kids to run through, a carousel, a big playground with swings and slides, a lake to walk around, tennis courts, basketball courts, nice picnic tables, plenty of grass, etc. We will be going back. We loved it!

This is a great, safe, and friendly place to take kids and dogs. There is a nice long path to walk or run around the soccer fields and lake. There is also an excellent playground for kids of all ages with some water fountains to play in. There is also some paddle boats and an old-fashioned carousel.
