AURORA, COLORADO — General Contractor Pinkard Construction Company has topped out on the addition at City of Aurora’s Moorhead Recreation Center.

The extensive addition includes enclosing the existing outdoor pool in a natatorium to create an indoor pool, creating dedicated lap pool, adding a new leisure pool and 55-foot waterslide. Other improvements include renovating the existing pool and replacing the 4,500 square foot drop-in center with a new 41,000 sf recreation center and natatorium to better meet the needs of the community. There will be a new entry and reception desk, new locker rooms and restrooms, a full-sized gymnasium with three cross courts and a running track, new fitness and cardio space, community teaching kitchen, multi-purpose rooms, public computer space, and additional parking. The project was designed by Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture.
