Longmont Recreation Center

Feasibility Study + Design

Architecturally inspired to celebrate Longmont’s agricultural heritage, the Longmont Recreation Center represents its citizens’ collective dream becoming reality. The public involvement process was extensive and residents stayed involved and informed throughout, offering vital support and input. Site selection, program plan and budget were completed in preparation of a 1999 bond issue.

Some of the key components include lap swimming and leisure pools, a climbing wall, game room, childcare area, fitness and meeting rooms, weight training area and track. Longmont’s new 63,500-s.f. center opened in spring 2002.

“They [BRS] were phenomenal to work with.”
- Don Bessler, (former) Director of Parks and Recreation
