Status Updates

  • Red Brick Recreation Center Closed
    Updated on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 @ 7:31am Projected Opening: December 2
    Current Status The City of Aspen will close the Red Brick Recreation Center to the public effective November 11 through December 2 in response to limited staffing resources. A recent Pitkin County order for some staff to quarantine after an exposure to COVID-19 impacted the staffing levels required to operate the facility safely. The Aspen Recreation Department is taking these steps out of an abundance of caution as our patrons, employees, and community's health and safety are of the utmost importance.

    All group activities are unavailable until at least 12/2, due to the move of Pitkin County to the Orange level, with stricter capacity limits on gyms and group sports. Learn more here, https://covid19.pitkincounty.com/.

By managing the number of pass holders we are able to ensure our guests are able to enjoy the activities that are open during a time frame that is good for them.

    For the Adult pass that is $9.75 per visit. You can participate in multiple activities in one day. For example you can take a fitness class at the Red Brick at lunchtime then use the weight room at the ARC that same evening for one punch, but you would need to make reservation for each activity.
