The South Suburban Parks and Recreation District has provided recreational opportunities for nearly 160,000 residents in six cities and towns throughout Arapahoe, Douglas and Jefferson counties for nearly 40 years. In 2017, voters approved a ballot initiative to develop South Suburban’s newest facility—the South Suburban Sports Complex.
The 206,000-sq-ft indoor sports and recreation venue is designed to serve a wide range of community programs and interests. The complex is one of the few facilities in the region that includes three sheets of ice—a main sheet with seating for 800, a second sheet with seating for 250 and a third sheet with minimal seating for practices and free skating. The facility also features two indoor turf fields, a sports performance training room, a gymnasium with two full-size courts, plus locker rooms, a skate rental shop, pro shop and a snack bar. The district also moved its administrative offices into the new building.
