There are no charges or fees for Genesee residents and their guests to use any of the Genesee buildings or facilities. Vista Clubhouse, Foothills Clubhouse and Oxley Homestead may be rented by residents for a nominal fee for private parties, weddings, graduations and other gatherings.


Vista Clubhouse

The Vista Clubhouse is the central hub for community events and private rentals. It features:

  • The Genesee Foundation offices Here you will find our Community Manager, full-time staff and our Open Space Manager. Copy facilities and Genesee Foundation maps, trail books and logo merchandise are also available.

  • Two connected meeting rooms One has an adjacent full kitchen and the other has a fireplace, flat-screen TV and opens onto a large two-level deck with wonderful views of Mt. Evans and the Continental Divide. The deck and available grill may be reserved for private parties of up to 12 people.

  • Two swimming pools Overseen by certified lifeguards, our adult pool provides serene views of Mt. Evans and our shallow kids’ pool is perfect for our non-swimmers. The pool area is surrounded by an expansive pool deck and lush grassy areas with comfortable chaise lounges, chairs and tables. Men’s and women’s locker rooms are conveniently located inside the Clubhouse. The pool deck is also the site for our popular Strings at the Pool concerts several times each summer.

  • Two tennis courts Tennis players will find summertime singles and doubles leagues playing here and at Solitude. Inquire at the Genesee office about tennis lessons and to borrow a ball machine. One court is striped for two pickle ball courts and there is a very popular PB group with open play hours several days a week.

  • Basketball half-court This court has a 10-ft. regulation-size backboard and balls are available at the Foundation office.

  • Playground This well-used facility includes a set of swings and a jungle gym that includes slides, climbers and monkey bars. It’s well-maintained for child safety and boasts one of the most incredible views of any playground anywhere!


Foothills Clubhouse

  • Fitness center This two-floor facility features an impressive array of state-of-the art fitness equipment, including a wide variety of resistance machines, free weights, treadmills, a rowing machine, elliptical trainers, a StairMaster, spin bikes, mats for stretching and floor exercises and more. Professional fee-based trainers are welcome to register to use the facility to train residents and some fitness classes are occasionally offered.

  • Locker rooms Men’s and women’s locker rooms serve both gym rats and swimmers. They each include lockers, showers and steam rooms.

  • Meeting room This open area overlooks the pool and has comfortable couches and chairs, a microwave and a coffee machine. It’s perfect for small casual gatherings or just reading.

  • Library Located at one side of the meeting room, this book-exchange style library was bullt through donations from residents and has a rotating selection of hundreds of paperback and hard cover books of all types. A separate children’s book area is maintained for our younger residents.

  • Lap pool This new, competition-sized pool (25 meters X 5 lanes) is supervised by certified lifeguards and is surrounded by a pool deck, grassy areas with shade and comfortable lounges, chairs and tables. It’s also home to Genesee's award-winning Mountain Thunder swim team.

  • Racquetball If racquetball is your game, courts are available for use by Genesee residents just down the road in Genesee Village. Inquire at the Genesee office for information.


Oxley Homestead

The Oxley Homestead building dates back to the turn of the last century and accommodates up to 20 people. It has a large meeting room with plenty of seating and a separate conference-style room with a long table and an adjacent small kitchen and pantry.


Hiking Trails

Genesee boasts 12 miles of maintained and signed hiking trails that meander throughout the community's Open Space. These very popular trails are for foot traffic only: two- and (leashed) four-legged hikers alike. Trail maps and a new trail description book are available at the Genesee office.


Solitude Tennis Courts

Remotely located at the southern edge of Genesee, Solitude's tennis courts are aptly named. Fresh with mountain air and splendid views, these two courts provide a welcome change from municipal courts for resident tennis enthusiasts. As with the courts at Vista Clubhouse, tennis lessons and a ball machine are available and league play occurs here. A very clean, free-standing bathroom building is located adjacent to the courts.


ANCILLARY FACILITIES

  • FIRE DEPARTMENT

    • Our award-winning volunteer fire department is centrally located within the Genesee community. With two paid professionals and approx. 25 volunteers, it serves the Genesee Fire District and, with cooperative agreements with nearby departments and the Highland Rescue Team, provides quick and effective 24/7 fire and medical response to Genesee residents and guests.

  • WATER TREATMENT PLANT AND RESERVOIR

    • Located near the Solitude Tennis Courts, Genesee Water District’s new, state-of-the-art water treament plant provides what we think is the cleanest, best-tasting water in Colorado. The recent addition of a large reservoir nearby will also allow them to supply residents with sufficient water in case of a future drought.
