Get free admission to the Breck Rec Center on May 4

There may be no such thing as a free lunch, but for one day only there’s such a thing as free rec center admission.

The Breckenridge Recreation Center’s annual community open house and free admission day returns Thursday, May 4 from 5:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is free for users of any age throughout the day, including the swimming pool.

New open house activities include a summer job fair from 1-3 p.m., where local job-seekers can get information about open positions with the recreation department. Friends of the Breckenridge Trails will also present upcoming volunteer trail-building opportunities from 4-5 p.m., and the family of Bentley Bedker will share the story behind the recreation center’s Bedker Climbing Scholarship from 5-6 p.m.

For the fitness-minded, 10 free fitness classes will be offered throughout the day starting at 6 a.m., including a Fitness 4 Class Sampler of four exciting half-hour classes, running from 4:30-6 p.m.

Check out the sights from the rock climbing wall with $2 belay rides for all ages from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. And all ages are invited to the rec’s first Chuck-A-Duck Competition in the pool: competitors try to land rubber ducks in targets for prizes.

For more information about the Breck Rec Center open house and free admission day, visit or call (970) 453-1734. The Breckenridge Recreation Center is located at 880 Airport Road.
