Even though we live about 20 minutes away, the Erie Recreation Center is one of my family’s favorite spots to visit, especially in the winter. The main attraction for us is the awesome twisty slide which my sons go up and down too many times to count.
Erie Colorado is a small community within an easy commute to Boulder, Longmont or Denver. It has been one of the fastest growing towns in our area. Initially, home buyers were just attracted by the affordable homes but now the infrastructure has caught up and Erie has some great public assets.

One nice thing about a newer community is the community planning. The city reserved a large parcel of land right in a great location and over the past few years has made this area a town jewell. The Erie Recreation Center is housed in the Erie Community Center. The rec center includes the pool, gym, workout area, climbing wall and running track. Also in the building are a cool just for teens area, meeting rooms and a children’s center.
Sharing the same parking lot is the Erie Public Library. Right across the parking lot are some new additions this year. Ball fields, playgrounds and some nice tennis courts (as some of you may know good tennis courts are important to me!). Also in the complex are some open fields which also double as a great place to put on a concert.
If your looking for a great place to cool off this summer, or just a nice place to hange out check out the Erie Recreation Center. Your kids will thank you for the opportunity.
