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. 
                             320 Centennial Drive 
  Milliken, CO 80543  
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.

1. Milliken Athletic Complex  
320 Centennial Dr Milliken 80543
2. Nelson Farm Park (Ball Fields) 
671 Telep Avenue Johnstown 80534
3. Sticker Stadium  
398 E S First Street Johnstown 80534
4. Johnstown Pool (at RHS) 
616 N Second Street Johnstown 80534
5. Milliken Pool 
112 S Centennial Drive Milliken 80543
6. Centennial Park (Lake, Tennis Courts) 
112 Centennial Drive Milliken 80543
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. 

The Milliken Athletic Complex (the home of TRPR) is a game changer for the communities of  
Milliken and Johnstown.
The MAC is home to youth and adult athletics, special events, community organizations (such as the Boys and Girls Club and Boy Scouts) and active community programming such as yoga, Zumba, dance and cheer. With the population of our communities rapidly expanding, TRPR is busting at the seams. This  facility couldn't have come at a more critical time.
