Berthoud Recreation Center at Waggener Farm Park is part of the first phase of a Parks Master Plan conducted in Berthoud, Colorado. The main programming goals within the Waggener Farm Park site included:
The Waggener Farm Park site is approximately 59 acres. The site was owned and then donated by a farmer. His request when he donated the land was for the northern third to be used to further this project, while the larger southern portion to remain a natural landscape. Designed by BRS the center welcomes guests through the “farmhouse” entry wrapped in a broad porch, complete with rocking chairs and a dual-sided fireplace. Inside, tile mosaics and murals draw your eye through the spaces highlighting the locker rooms and the waterslide tower. A bouldering wall stretches along a hallway, activating a typically dull and dead space. A pre-engineered metal gymnasium has basketball, volleyball, pickleball courts, and a walking track loop along the outside. The aquatics center features a lazy river, large hot tub, three-lane lap pool, activity pool with spray features, climbing wall and jump platform, sprayground and waterslide with timer. Fitness includes state-of-the-art equipment, an aerobics room with garage doors, and an outdoor fitness area. Other amenities include a flexible group fitness room, a community event room, and a child watch. The clean and bright contemporary finishings bring the agricultural history to a modern-day setting.
