Rec & Park’s registration system is faster, more reliable and is mobile-ready. It is the one-stop location for everything, including the purchase of aquatics passes and program memberships.

The Wish List feature allows families to browse all classes prior to registration day, select activities for each family member, store them, and then sign up for everything with one click as soon as registration opens. Should any of the classes be full, one click adds them to the wait list.

For all of the details, see the Registration Information page.

You may also register in person at Upper Noe Recreation Center, which is one of 11 neighborhood registration sites.

Finally, you can register in person at Rec and Park Headquarters in Golden Gate Park: McLaren Lodge, 501 Stanyan Street (at Fell). Call (415) 831-6800 for help.
