It is hard to believe it has been more than a year since the Estes Valley
Community Center (EVCC) opened its doors. But just like great things come to those who wait—like waiting more than six decades for an award-winning recreation center in Estes Park—waiting one week for EVCC staff to perform annual maintenance, deep cleaning and facility upgrades will help ensure the building remains in good working order for a long time.
The Estes Valley Community Center will be closed to the public from Monday, May 20 to Friday May 24 so the staff can complete a variety of activities that are too difficult due to safety or health reasons with the facility open to the public. The facility will reopen at 8 a.m. on Saturday, May 25.
This time of year was selected based on the availability of vendors, a slowdown in scheduled indoor activities, and when there are typically fewer people in the facility. During this closure there will be no Cubz Den, open swim, open gym, senior services activities, or access to the golf simulator.
“A deep cleaning of the recreation center is a necessary evil in the management of a seven-day- a-week operation,” said Ivana Knudson, Guest Services Manager. “We have rearranged all schedules so that we can complete the necessary work during this time frame with as minimal impact on patrons as possible.”
The scheduled work includes:
Cleaning and finishing the floors of the upper and lower fitness rooms
Draining lap pool for deep cleaning
Restriping the parking lot
Carpet cleaning throughout the building
Cleaning and finishing the gym floor
