Facilities Info & Hours

For updated facility hours and closures please visit the COVID-19 Updates page.

Our outdoor amenities (outdoor tennis courts, disc golf) are free for Ken-Caryl residents. The only exception is Mountain Gate and Bell Ken-Caryl apartment residents must pay the non-resident rate at the Community Center because Mountain Gate and Bell Ken-Caryl are part of the Plains Metropolitan District, not the Ken-Caryl Ranch Metropolitan District. The fitness programs, pools, and indoor tennis courts at the Community Center have various fees for residents and non-residents.
