Our outdoor amenities (pools, outdoor tennis courts, disc golf) are free for Ken-Caryl residents except for the Community Center for Mountain Gate residents. Because Mountain Gate is part of the Plains Metropolitan District, those residents must pay the non-resident rate at the Community Center. The fitness programs and indoor tennis courts at the Community Center have various fees for residents and non-residents. Please view our Facility Use Fees.
