Since opening its doors 20 years ago, the Recreation Center has been a hub for recreation and fitness in Fort Lupton. A place that builds community and inspires all to discover, imagine, and grow. As the city has grown we have seen corresponding increases in demands on our facility and our programs. With the addition of a gym, fitness center and warm water pool we can meet those needs. The finished expansion will allow us more facility space to accommodate drop in users as well as allow us to expand and develop new programs and opportunities for our citizens. The Recreation Center has plans to expand starting in early Fall 2023 to meet the growing needs of the community.

  • Harrison Reconstruction Project

  • UPDATE: Expansion Project

    • The expansion of the Recreation Center marks a new chapter for wellness and recreation for the City of Fort Lupton. Since opening its doors 20 years ago, the Recreation Center has been a hub for recreation and fitness in Fort Lupton. A place that builds community and inspires all to discover, imagine, and grow. As the city has grown we have seen corresponding increases in demands on our facility and our programs. With the addition of a gym, fitness center and warm water pool we can meet those needs. The finished expansion will allow us more facility space to accommodate drop in users as well as allow us to expand and develop new programs and opportunities for our citizens. The Recreation Center has plans to expand starting in early Fall 2023 to meet the growing needs of the community. For more information please follow us on Facebook: Fort Lupton Recreation Center Expansion Project.

  • Committee Openings: Get involved in The City of Fort Lupton! We have multiple openings on our citywide committees. For more details please visit: View our committee openings here
