Carla Madison Recreation Center

The city and county of Denver hopes to have its new rec center at the northeast corner of Josephine Street and East Colfax Avenue open by December, said Cyndi Karvaski, spokeswoman with Denver Parks and Recreation.

On a monthly basis, the center is expected to serve 35,000 people, including many students from the nearby East High School, Karvaski said in an email.

Construction on the 69,000-square-foot Carla Madison Recreation Center began in November 2015. The center is expected to include a rooftop deck; two swimming pools; a gymnasium with a full-size basketball court and cardio-weight room; group exercise rooms; a multi-purpose room; a child watch area; outdoor amenities; community gathering spaces; and diverse programming that promotes healthy and active lifestyles.

Other amenities planned for the site include an outdoor climbing wall, a quarter-acre dog park, table tennis, a slackline area, large picnic tables, onsite bike parking, a 15-bike B-Cycle station, climbing boulders and 130 parking spaces.

Carla Madison, whom the center is named after, served as the City Council representative of District 8 from 2007 until her death in 2011. She was 54.
