Raton Recreation Center

The 42,000 sq. ft. Raton Recreation Center was designed to provide fitness to the community that included swimming pools, basketball courts, weights, indoor running track, community meeting room and a daycare in a state-of-the-art, environmentally-friendly building.

The building is designed to be energy-efficient and resource conserving. The use of passive solar heating, cooling and daylighting will dramatically reduce operating costs. Solar hot water heating panels will reduce pool water heating costs. Recycled and low-maintenance materials such as fly-ash concrete were used also throughout the facility.

The 5,000 sq. ft. indoor swimming pool is the first year-round pool to be operated in Northeast New Mexico and Southeast Colorado. Combining recreation with lap swimming the pool features:

Three 25-yard fitness lap lanes

  • One-meter diving board
  • 12’ tall climbing wall
  • Vortex
  • Waterslide with 280 sq. ft. plunge area
  • Water basketball
  • Underwater bench seating
  • 1,250 sq. ft. kiddy area
  • Train-themed kiddy slide
  • Zero-depth entry
  • Water spray features
  • ADA accessible chair lift
