History

WECMRD—it just means fun, is more than a slogan it’s our promise to you and your family. We work hard each day to create and present the best facilities, programs, sports and activities for our residents. From Tiny Tot Tumbling to adult softball, flag football or half-marathons, we have an activity for each member of your family!

WECMRD was established in 1980 under the Colorado Special District act, with the purpose of building a swimming pool in Eagle. For the next 22 years, WECMRD operated with the swimming pool, 2 baseball fields and use of a small building for programs.  In 2002, WECMRD voters approved a bond issue which spurred the growth to the large, multi-facility district you now know.

Since 2003, WECMRD has added over $30 million in new facilities while maintaining our primary mission “to provide affordable programs and quality recreation facilities for the residents of western Eagle County.”  Our youth programs are exceptionally affordable, for example, many youth sports programs are just $28 and you can save even more when you register online.

WECMRD has not increased taxes since the 2002 bond election and has maintained low, family-friendly membership fees at our recreation facilities.  The Gypsum Recreation Center still has the same membership rates as when we opened in December, 2006!!

We are proud of and thankful for the hundreds of volunteers who assist us each year as coaches or instructors for youth programs. They are among the best in Eagle County and bring positive life lessons and sports instruction while filling a valuable role in helping us maintain our low fees.

Stop by one of our award winning facilities to learn about recreation options for your family. Please check our fitness schedule at the Gypsum Rec Center for yoga, aerobics or the intense body shaping of our Fury program or you can work out at your own pace in our 8,000 square foot fitness center featuring free weights, circuit training and dozens of cardio equipment choices.  Or, you might enjoy the GRC pool, recognized as the 2008 Outstanding Aquatics Facility in the US!

You can learn to skate at the Eagle Ice Rink and learn to swim at the Eagle Pool. Or, how about perfecting a new snowboard or freestyle ski aerial at the Anti Gravity Center at the WECMRD Field House? We have outdoor sports complexes for football, soccer, lacrosse, baseball or softball, Skate parks, a great BMX track, 3 swimming pools and more!
