GVRC Project Update

We are getting new carpet at GVRC! Out with the old and in with the new!

We are almost done with the new carpet here at the Recreation Center! 🎉 Thank you so much for all of your patience and for being so accommodating to all the changes that have been made thus far.

We will start the demo of the Locker Rooms on Friday, 1/7/22, from 9:00a-5:00p. Here's what this will look like!

🚨Men's Locker Rooms: The dry areas (locker) will be closed until demo is done, but the showers and toilets will be accessible from the poolside.

🚨Women's Locker Rooms: The entire locker room will be closed until the demo is done.

The Locker Rooms will remain open over the weekends, there will just be bare concrete. Starting Monday, 1/10/22, both locker rooms will be closed for the glue and carpet to be laid. Once the carpet is down it is good to walk on and the locker rooms will open back up!

Again, thank you all for being so patient as we work on the new look for the Grand Valley Recreation Center. We appreciate you as members of GVRC and the community! 🙏

Welcome

The early settlers of Parachute Battlement Mesa had recreation and entertainment that involved helping neighbors build a cabin, ‘get togethers’ at neighbors for holidays, school and church picnics and even horse racing. The school house was used for dances and music was furnished by local townsfolk.

As for the kids; the children made up games, such as playing house, fashioning a rope swing to a tree, sledding on homemade sleds or wrestling. Often at Christmas there would be a play with young thespians showing off their acting skills.

Even though the population has fluctuated dramatically since then, with the original plans catered for population growth rates from the oil shale boom of 1981-1982, the dedication to the area has never faltered. The opportunity that PBMPRD had to form such a district was unique; and it is not often that recreation districts have the good fortune of having private oil shale industry build recreation infrastructure.

Prior to 2016 PBMPRD consisted primarily of sports programs. Effective January 2016 the Grand Valley Recreation Center and Battlement Mesa Golf Club were transferred to PBMPRD. The responsibility for operations and management of these entities was achieved without incurring indebtedness to the tax payer.

The Battlement Mesa Golf Club has been ranked as one of the “Best Courses in America You Can Play” by Golf Digest. Our unique and breathtaking setting is used to its full advantage on the course with high plains plateau overlooking none other than the Colorado River.

We are proud of our 53,000 sq. ft. indoor recreation center, that includes an indoor junior Olympic size swimming pool, hot tub, dry sauna and gymnasium available for basketball, pickle ball, and volleyball. We offer a state-of-the-art cardio and weight lifting rooms, along with meeting rooms and a caterer’s kitchen ready to handle any event you need. Additional amenities include, tennis courts, racquetball courts, game room, and indoor running track.

Nowadays the district serves approximate 7500 residents, as well as patrons from outside the district. Both residents and nonresidents enjoy the plethora of indoor and outdoor activities available not only for all age levels, but for all abilities and needs.

Our passion is to build community. A place where all families feel welcome to engage in all activities readily available within our district.
