This page addresses common questions new and established residents may have regarding facilities and the community.

Q: Can I bring a guest to the Swim and Fitness Club?

A: Residents and non-resident members may bring up to 2 guests (per household) at no charge, up to a maximum 7 visits per year. An applicable daily facility fee will be charged for additional guests above the 2 guest limit and/or for the same guest who visits more than 7 visits (per year). Please see our recreational facility policies and procedures for more information.

Q: Can my kids workout?

A: While we encourage fitness for all ages, children under the age of 14 are not permitted in the fitness center. Children ages 14 to 17 must be accompanied by an adult in the fitness center at all times. Unaccompanied minors 14 and over may use the pool facilities without an adult providing the proper release form has been completed. This form can be obtained from the office at the swim and fitness club. Please see the recreational facility policies and procedures for more information.

Q: How do I receive my access key card to the Swim and Fitness Centers?

A: You may receive your access key card by visiting the Townview or Parkview Swim and Fitness Center offices during office hours. Each household will receive two (2) access key cards at no charge. Cards are only assigned to residents who are present at the time of issuance. You must bring a photo ID and a copy of your closing statement or warranty deed showing your new address. Card sharing is not permitted.  For each additional or replacement access key card, there will be a one time charge of $30 per card.

Q: What can you tell me about the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge?

A: Created after the largest and most successful environmental cleanup in history, Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge represents a remarkable Colorado milestone. For decades, the center of Rocky Flats was home to a manufacturing plant supporting America’s nuclear program. But in the mid-2000s, following a massive 10-year cleanup project costing more than $7 billion, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department of Energy (DOE), surrounding cities and all other representative authorities gave approval to transform the area into protected open space. Due to a lack of federal government funding, the refuge is not yet open to the public. That will soon change, however, as Colorado recently announced plans for bike and pedestrian trails connecting Rocky Flats to other open spaces. Candelas is situated in Arvada, more than 1.3 miles from where the Rocky Flats facility once stood, and the two locations are separated by thousands of acres of protected open space.  Please visit for more information about Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge.

Q: Who do I contact to start my trash collection?

A: Please contact Waste Management at 303-797-1600 to start your trash and recycling service within Candelas Community.  Be sure to specify you live in the Candelas Community/Vauxmont Metropolitan District.  The Vauxmont Metropolitan District and Waste Management have a discounted agreement for this service.  You will be billed for trash removal directly from CCMC on a quarterly basis.
