July 2020. The Northglenn Recreation Center will be opening in stages, with restrictions. The city of Northglenn is also currently experiencing an uptick of Corona virus cases and the Recreation Center will adjust restrictions accordingly. For the safety of our members and the community, we feel that resuming the club’s indoor workouts should be delayed. We will continue to monitor the Corona virus situation closely and as soon as conditions warrant, the club will be fully re-opened.
