Cancellation & Refund Policies

Facility Reservations

Reservations may be cancelled online up to 12 hours prior to the start of your reservation/class time for a full refund issued as credit to your household account.

If you are cancelling a reservation within 12 hours, you must call 303-231-1300 and speak with a guest services team member to cancel. For cancellations made at least 2 hours prior to the reservation, a full refund will be issued as credit to your household account. No refunds will be given for cancellations made within 2 hours of the reservation.

Reservations may be transferred to another person up to 2 hours prior to your reservation. No transfer are allowed within 2 hours of your reservation.

No Show Fee Policy

Due to high demand for reservations, and an increased volume of patrons failing to show up for their reservation or cancel ahead of time, a $4 "no show" fee will be charged to individuals who do not show up for their reservation and fail to cancel within the allotted time frame. The fee will be added to your household account and must be paid before future reservations are able to be made. 

Recreation Programs

If you choose to withdraw from a recreation program, a full refund will be issued as a credit on your household account when you cancel at least 72 hours prior to the first class meeting. Cancellations may be made online, in-person, or by calling the Recreation Center at 303-231-1300 or Active Adult Center at 303-205-7500.

If it's within 72 hours of the program start date, cancellations must be made in-person or over the phone. No refunds will be issued for cancellations made within 72 hours of the program start date.

If we have to cancel or combine a class or program due to insufficient registration, or for any other reason, you will be notified prior to the class start date and will receive a full refund, credit or transfer to another class.
