Update: Tuesday, November 3, 12:00 p.m.

Dear Apex Customer,

Pursuant to our Board of Directors, acting on Jefferson County’s amended Public Health Order 20-009, spectators are permitted to attend youth recreational sports contests and practices indoors and outdoors (not applicable to CHSAA related sports). All spectators should adhere to 6 ft social distancing guidelines and must wear masks at all times when in an Apex Park and Recreation District facility.

Thank you for your cooperation in making Apex facilities a safe and active recreational sports environment.

Update: Friday, July 24, 1:00 p.m.

Here is the updated guidance around the mask mandate (COVID-19 Statewide Mask Order – FAQ). It can also be found here: https://covid19.colorado.gov/mask-guidance

Please pay attention to page 5 of the attached document and below:

SPORTS AND RECREATION

Do I need to wear a mask while exercising at an indoor gym?

  • Mask-wearing requirements apply to everyone indoors, including people exercising. If you are in an indoor room with other patrons who are not a part of your household, then you need to wear a mask. You may remove it temporarily if you need to catch your breath or safely perform an activity, but wear a mask as much as feasible.

What about indoor sports?

  • Masks should be worn while playing indoor sports unless it interferes with the activity. You may remove the mask temporarily to catch your breath if needed, or if you can’t wear appropriate safety equipment while wearing the mask. Wear a mask as much as feasible.

What if I’m swimming in an indoor pool?

  • You should take your mask off while swimming in the pool, but you must put it back on while you are not swimming but in the pool area.

Update: Friday, July 17, 3:00 p.m.

DO NOT ENTER WITHOUT FACE COVERINGIn compliance with State of Colorado Executive Order D 2020 138, all Apex customers, program participants, and spectators must wear a face covering (mask) when entering or moving within any public indoor space. Individuals with medical conditions, those who cannot remove a mask without assistance, and children ages 10 or under are not required to wear a face covering. If you are working out by yourself indoors or with members of your household, you do not have to wear a mask; if you are indoors with a group of people, a mask is required. You do not have to wear a mask while you are actively swimming, but you must put it back on while you are not swimming but in the pool area.

Staff will be enforcing this order, signage will be posted, and communications will be sent to the public, and it will apply to all programming where applicable – this means that some activities that until now did not require a face covering will now require a mask for participation. We appreciate your understanding and compliance as we work to ensure the well-being and safety of our community while continuing to provide exceptional health, wellness, sport, and recreation opportunities.

Entry to the pool is $5/person per reservation slot. Due to high demand and limited capacities in the pool this summer, we ask that our patrons limit 1 reservation slot per individual. This ensures that all members of our community have an opportunity to enjoy outdoor swimming this summer. You may make reservations for more than one person, but each individual needs their own reservation time slot. Please note that the pool deck will be cleared for 15 minutes and you will need to re-enter for any additional time slots. Tier 1, Tier 2, Meyers Pool Passes, and Punch Cards are NOT VALID at the outdoor pool due to limited capacity this summer. If you wish to receive a credit in the system for remaining passes please contact HillaryR@ApexPRD.org.

What you Need to Know in Order to Make a Reservation:

• If you already have an Apex PRD account, please do not make a new one – if you hold a resident card, pass, punch card or have participated in an Apex activity you already have an account. If you don’t know your password, please click “Forget Password” and one will be emailed to you. You can also call our Guest Services staff to double check your account status

• Please login and make sure you know your password – this will expedite the reservation process

• You will need to register by individual – our system does not allow for multiple quantities

o Please make sure everyone you want to register is listed in your household

o When registering – select one individual – add to cart – return to shop and add the next person

As always, you can still enjoy Apex activities at home with our Apex at Home programs. You can find more information here: https://apexprd.org/activities/apex-at-home/

Update: Wednesday, June 3, 1:30 p.m.

After learning what the new guidelines that Governor Polis and the Jefferson County Public Health Department released this week, we are working hard to strategically plan for our community and find a healthy balance between what we can do to provide recreation in Arvada and keep our neighbors safe. Thank you for the support and patience. All updates will be posted here: apexprd.org/virus

UPDATE: Friday, May 29, 10:00 a.m.

Under directives from the administrations of Colorado Governor Jared Polis, Jefferson County Public Health, and our Board of Directors, Apex facilities will continue to be closed to the public.

We value your membership and realize that this closure is creating an interruption to your experience with us, but we want you to know how much we appreciate you for being a supporter of our district. We have made the difficult decision to cancel all month-to-month Tier 1 and Tier 2 passes effective immediately. You will not receive any more automatic withdrawals for your pass. Once we have direction from the county on when we can reopen and it’s financially feasible for us to sell passes again, we will make announcements via social media and our website.

For the most up-to-date communications regarding Apex closures, we encourage you to visit ApexPRD.org/virus.

Our mission at the Apex Park and Recreation District is to enhance the health of our community – socially, emotionally, and physically – by being a gathering place and trusted resource for a variety of activities and programs that connect people and improve their quality of life. We look forward to continuing this mission on behalf of our community as soon as possible.

UPDATE: Wednesday, May 27, 3:15 p.m.

OUTDOOR POOLS UPDATE

In these unprecedented and uncertain times, Apex Park and Recreation District has been challenged to try to continue to provide the recreation services and programs we know our community has come to love and expect. Due to restraints in place by the CDC and state and county Safer at Home orders, we don’t have a date that we know we can open our outdoor pools in what is already a very short season. Given this unknown, coupled with the time and protections we would need to put in place to effectively re-train lifeguards in new social distancing and life-saving rescue standards, and elimination of our traditional revenue streams that help us make up for the cost of running our pools due to extended closure of our facilities, Apex has made the very difficult decision to not open any of our outdoor pools for the summer of 2020. This was a hard decision for us to make but we will continue to explore ways that our community can recreate within the county and state guidelines.

For information regarding the Ralston Central Park Splash Pad and the splash pad in Olde Town Arvada, please visit the City of Arvada’s website: https://www.arvada.org/

Our mission at the Apex Park and Recreation District is to enhance the health of our community – socially, emotionally, and physically – by being a gathering place and trusted resource for a variety of activities and programs that connect people and improve their quality of life.

Starting Monday, May 18 all outdoor fields and select parks are available for permitted “personal training” rentals. Permits will be limited to reservations of no more than four people and participants are not allowed to share equipment. Please also abide by strict social distancing recommendations including staying six feet apart, wearing a mask to and from the fields, washing hands often and staying home if you are feeling ill. Please contact Whitney at WhitneyW@ApexPRD.org for more information and to secure a permit.

Tournaments scheduled on June 6 and 7 and June 13 and 14 are canceled. June 20 and 21 sporting events are canceled.

UPDATE: Wednesday, May 13, 6:30 p.m.

In the constantly changing landscape of COVID-19 management, Apex Park and Recreation District is doing all it can to provide safe and healthy recreation services to our community. Our facility openings and program offerings are being phased in as we receive information from local health agencies. Unfortunately, those directions can change, and we must comply. We have been given operating restrictions from the Jefferson County Health Department that make it fiscally impossible to open our indoor courts at the Apex Tennis Center, so they, therefore, must be closed to the public. For more information call 303.420.1210.

UPDATE: Friday, May 8, 9:00 a.m.

Outdoor Fields – Outdoor fields are closed until further notice. We are working on getting more information from Jefferson County Public Health. We will send an update as soon as we know.

Dear Apex Community,

Never before have we had to address a challenge quite like the coronavirus pandemic. It has led to an unsettling time for our communities as the number of confirmed cases grow. More than anything, the safety of our members, guests, staff, and volunteers is paramount. Under directives from the administrations of Colorado Governor Jared Polis and our Board of Directors, all Apex facilities will be closed to the public through April 30, 2020.

We know that financial uncertainty is a concern for many of you, and we have been working hard with our staff to provide you with the following information regarding credits and refunds for passes, programs, rentals, and events affected during the closure period.

Credits will be posted to customer accounts by activity, so it may take a few days for all transactions to post to your account; we anticipate having all credits posted by March 31. Any refunds being issued will be done so via original method of payment (i.e. to the credit or debit card that was used to make the purchase). Other refunds that need to be made by check may take up to 30 days to process. Coordinator contact information can be found by visiting https://apexprd.org/activities/. The District uses a third-party vendor to process our payments and refunds so if there are delays or errors, we apologize and will work diligently to correct any issues.

Our mission at the Apex Park and Recreation District is to enhance the health of our community – socially, emotionally, and physically – by being a gathering place and trusted resource for a variety of activities and programs that connect people and improve their quality of life. We look forward to continuing this mission on behalf of our community as soon as possible.
