Greenwood Village offers a Recreation Reimbursement to residents of up to $500 per household (primary residence only) annually.
The normal annual deadline for submitting reimbursement receipts is January 15th. Due to the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday falling on Monday, January 15, 2024, residents will have until Tuesday, January 16, 2024 to submit 2023 receipts. This is a hard deadline - no exceptions are made for late submittals. Please remember that you may submit your reimbursements year round.

Support Art through Your Recreation Reimbursement Refund
On November 4, 2013 at the City Council Study Session, City Council reached general consensus to place a donation box on the recreation reimbursement form. Residents now have the option to donate all or a portion of their recreation reimbursement refund to the Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities Council (GVAHC) for the purpose of acquiring and placing art in public parks, trails, open spaces and facilities owned by the Village.
The GVAHC has been instrumental in bringing public art to the Village; recent pieces include the re-installation of the “The Dolphins” and the installation of the “The Nest.” Both sculptures are on loan from the Museum of Outdoor Art and located in Westlands Park.
In addition to bringing public art to the Village, the GVAHC sponsors public programs, art workshops, annual fundraisers, and is responsible for awarding art scholarships to Arapahoe County Seniors majoring in one of the art disciplines at an arts college.
Residents interested in learning more about the GVAHC are encouraged to attend their monthly meetings held at the Curtis Center for the Arts, 2349 East Orchard Road, Greenwood Village, on the third Thursday of the month at 6:00 p.m.
