Dog Park Grand Opening

Rec Staff 2022 2


“To put forth the highest level of parks, programs, facilities , and services  necessary, to establish Rifle as the premier recreational community on  the Western Slope”.

Location & Hours

Rifle Recreation is located in the lower level of City Hall. Office hours are usually 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday - Friday. Since we are a small department, we can not staff the registration desk at all times. If we missed you or you can not make the hours listed, please give us a call and we will find a time that works for you.


You can now register on-line for many of our programs with Civic Rec. Registration is done on a first-come, first-served basis. Several programs, including many sports programs, require registration at our office due to a uniform sizing. Visit us at City Hall for these programs or give us a call at (970)665-6574 if you are unable to.

A $25 service charge will be added to all returned checks. 

Refunds will not be given after the registration deadline or three days before an activity (whichever comes first). Emergencies will be dealt with on a case by case basis. Full refunds will be given for any class being cancelled.  



Rifle Recreation believes that everyone should be able to participate in our activities. Scholarships are available for qualified applicants. Download a scholarship application.


Rifle Recreation is committed to supporting the Americans with Disabilities Act. Please call us if you require special assistance for participation in our programs.
