Apex Recreation Center

Location: Arvada, Colorado
Client: North Jeffco Parks & Recreation District

At 168,000 s.f., this new indoor water theme park and family center displays a new adventure look for recreation centers.  The innovative concepts for the structural steel, glass, precast and brick veneer are carried throughout the facility.  An “old mining town” theme and interactive water play system are integrated into the aquatic area. There are two separate NHL size ice arenas, two gymnasiums, an aerobics room, climbing wall, cafe-bar area and a soft-play children’s room with an interactive treehouse. At a cost of $22.7 million, the facility is the largest recreation district owned center in the country.
