BRS Visits Carla Madison Recreation Center Under Construction

BRS Visits Carla Madison Recreation Center Under Construction

Our team gets a preview of the views from the nearly completed urban rec center on Colfax.

Last week a group of BRSer’s visited a job site that is very close to home. The Carla Madison Recreation Center is the first urban public rec center in the State of Colorado and it is less than four miles from our office. Having recently “topped out”, we climbed to the highest level and saw what will become the event space with amazing views to downtown Denver and the mountains beyond.

As we made our way down the stairs, we stopped at the gym and fitness areas on the second floor. When the building is complete, this floor will have a window that looks out onto the East High School clock tower.

On the first floor, we saw the rebar that will form the lap pool and leisure pool. These two pools will be a great asset for both families and athletes in the community.

Lastly, we walked around the site. We were excited to see the piers being installed for the exterior rock climbing wall on the east side of the building, and the beginnings of a three-tier rain garden on the west side that will treat rainwater before it is returned to the city stormwater system. Lastly, a staff favorite in the office, we got eyes on the location of a new dog park on the north side of the building.

After the tour, many BRSer’s headed to RiNo to explore a first Friday tour in our office neighborhood. It is wonderful to be working in a part of Denver that always has so much going on!
