Registration for Summer Session 2024 – begins May 18 at 10 am.

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.

Play Pass: This free card system is useful for all of our facilities and it is available to anyone who has a Rec & Park account. It instantly checks you into any facility with one simple swipe, giving you more time to exercise and play. It can attach to your keychain to keep your class registration and other information in a single, safe place.
A Play Pass is not required to use Rec & Park facilities.

Wish List: 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.

Waiting Lists: always put your name on the waiting list if your preferred class or section is full. Openings often appear once a class has begun.

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