The Carbon Valley Recreation Center will be closed for cleaning week Sunday, August 27 through Monday, September 4. The Ft. Lupton Recreation Center will honor CVPRD member passes during cleaning week however they will not honor punch passes or child care passes. Child care is $3 per hour. Ft. Lupton's pool and lockers rooms will not be available during this time due to maintenance. CVPRD staff will be available by phone Monday, August 28 through Thursday, August 31 from 8 am - 5 pm. Walk-in registrations will also be accepted at the Carbon Valley Recreation Center during those hours.
Much of what happens during shutdown may not be visible to patrons, but it's important and allows the facility to operate year-round. "The annual shutdown allows us to complete large projects that we are unable to work on when the facility is open," said Ross Blackmer, Executive Director. ”General cleaning takes place every day throughout the year but the annual shutdown is when we deep clean the entire recreation center.”
Many upgrades will be completed during the week along with smaller tasks such as power washing chairs, dusting ducts, deep cleaning lockers, equipment maintenance, steam cleaning carpets, painting and much more. While the week is a busy one for recreation staff, they come together to make the facility shiny and new for when it reopens on Tuesday, September 5.
