The Paul Derda Recreation Center

The Paul Derda Recreation Center pool is designed especially for families and children of all ages. It has a leisure pool with a zero depth entry, a butterfly slide designed especially for toddlers, an interactive water play structure called gadgets and gizmos, and 3 waterfalls that dump into the pool. Slides and play structures are open during open swim hours only. It features a body slide and an inner-tube slide with a surprise splash at the end. The current channel allows you to relax on an inner-tube or work out by walking against the flow.
There is also a 25-yard, three-lane lap pool available for lap swim, water aerobics, and playtime during busy hours. Finally, when you need a break from all of the excitement, you can relax in either our family hot tub for all ages or our adult only hot tub -a place to escape.
Pool space may be limited due to lessons or water aerobics. A lap lane may or may not be available during the open swim times. PDRC pools close 30 minutes before the building closes.

Safety Checks at PDRC
At 3 p.m., we clear all pools at PDRC for a 20-minute safety check. We will perform safety checks on weekends, holidays, summer, and no-school days. Adults, 18 and older, are allowed to swim in the pool during this time. All slide features and the family hot tub will be closed and turned off during the safety check.

The Broomfield Community Center
The Broomfield Community Center pool is designed for water aerobics and lap swim. the 25-yard pool has six lanes for lap swim, a diving board and a basketball hoop for the kids. It also has a therapeutic spa to relax in after a good workout!

  • Take breaks to hydrate and go to the bathroom.
  • Do not enter the pool if you show any signs of illness or diarrhea within the past two weeks.
  • Immediately report any unidentified objects in the pool. We will clear or close the pool anytime a fecal accident is discovered.

Parent Supervision Policy
  • Parents are directly responsible for the safety of their children at all times!
  • Children 6 years and younger must be accompanied in the pool by a paying adult, and stay within arm’s reach, at all times.
  • Children who cannot swim on their own, regardless of age, must be accompanied in the pool by a paying adult and stay within arm’s reach at all times.
