[ARCHIVED] The Recreation Center will be closed for annual maintenance Monday, August 6th-Sunday August 12th.

The Bob L. Burger Recreation Center will be closed Saturday, August 4, 2018 through Sunday, August, 12, 2018 for annual maintenance. The center, the lap pool, and the river will re-open on Monday, August 13th, 2018 at 5:00 a.m. The play pool will re-open on Saturday, August 18, due to extended maintenance on this area.

The annual maintenance week is for the repair and restoration of recreation center areas that are impossible to get to during normal operating hours. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause; however, your Bob L. Burger Recreation Center will be receiving some tremendous improvements.

During the closure, walk-in registration will not be available as we are performing maintenance on the front walkway and front desk area. Online registration is available during our shutdown. Phone support with online registration is available by calling 303-665-0469 between 8 am - 5 pm Monday- Friday.

To minimize the inconvenience, we have partnered with the Erie Community Center during this time. This facility will honor Lafayette annual or monthly passes during our closure. Present your BBRC pass to the front desk staff. You may want to remember to bring your own lock. Please remember that policies and procedures may be different from what you are accustomed to at the Bob L. Burger Recreation Center. Please contact the Erie Community Center with specific questions about the facility or its policies.

Burger Recreation Center on Monday, August 13th, 2018, ready to serve all of your recreation needs!
