Get to Know Us!

Officially we’re called the Thompson Rivers Parks & Recreation District. But we’d rather you thought of us as your local Fun and Play District. Because when you get down to it, we’re the folks who bring your community health and fitness programs, recreational sports, senior citizen activities and special events to life.

Currently we operate and maintain six facilities across the Johnstown-Milliken area where you, your family, and your neighbors can come together in the name of fun.

Want to share an idea with us?

Send it on over to or give us a call at (970) 660.8750. Heck, you could even swing by Monday through Friday between 8 am-5 pm. 

Want to get involved?

Stop by our monthly Board Meeting, held the fourth Monday of each month at 6:00pm in the South Platte Community Room of the Milliken Athletic Complex at 320 Centennial Drive in Milliken, CO.

And now for the formal mumbo jumbo

We are a Special District, funded primarily by local property taxes to provide and maintain parks and recreational facilities for the enjoyment of all its district citizens. We are not a city department.

The parks and recreation district is overseen by an elected board of directors and their appointed staff who are responsible for the programming and maintenance of its acreage and facilities.
