Fruita Community Center closed until Monday

FRUITA, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- If you're looking to play basketball or hit the gym in Fruita this weekend, you may have to head outdoors instead.

The Fruita Community Center is closed until Monday.

Every year they shut down for one week for annual maintenance and cleaning.

This allows staff to deep clean the entire facility including the pools, by scrubbing and refilling with more than 250,000 gallons of water.

The fitness areas and meeting rooms are also reorganized and cleaned.

"We redo all they gym floors, we do a lot of painting, we drain the pool, we clean out the regenerative media filter that we have and overall general maintenance that we really can't do when the public is here because painting and stuff like that creates fumes,” said Tom Casal, Recreation Superintendent, City of Fruita.

The library in the community center is open. Details about times and prices are to the right of this page.
