COMMUNITY CENTERS ALKI DELRIDGE HIAWATHA HIGH POINT SOUTH PARK


Dear Recreation Enthusiast, Summer is our favorite time of year at Seattle Parks and Recreation. It’s when throngs of Seattleites fill our parks with picnics, pick-up ball games, laughing children, long walks, weddings, lazy days at the beach and so much more. This year as spring and summer come around, we at Seattle Parks have our minds on some serious business: continuing to fund the parks, programs and services that Seattleites know and love. We have spent the past two years planning for a vibrant future of our park system with the development of the Parks Legacy Plan. This is a guiding document that helps us plan for the future of Seattle’s public parklands and facilities. We have developed this with significant input from residents who use our parks, programs and facilities. We used the document as the basis for a possible park funding

measure that may go in front of voters later this year. We have held a series of public meetings to inform the community about the plan and get feedback from residents. Just about the time this brochure goes to print, the Mayor- and Councilappointed Parks Legacy Plan Citizens’ Advisory Committee will be making its final recommendations on the size and type of funding package. The Mayor and Council will take further public input before determining what will go before voters. If you’d like to learn more about Legacy Plan, or the status of the proposed funding ballot measure, please visit our website at www.seattle.gov/parks/legacy/committee.htm. Sincerely, Christopher Williams, Superintendent

NEW SUMMER CAMP INFORMATION!

Registration is not complete and a spot in the class cannot be held without payment in full. Fees and charges ARC-Our Advisory Council provides the programs and activities listed in this brochure under an agreement with Seattle Parks and Recreation. Fees are used to offset the cost of providing the programs. Program charges include a user fee paid to Seattle Parks and Recreation to defray operating costs. Washington State sales tax is also included where applicable. City-Fees and charges are necessary to provide financial support to Seattle Parks and Recreation for the operating costs of programs, facilities and grounds. The revenue generated by these fees constitutes only a portion of funds required for operating and maintaining the Parks system. All fees collected from activities and concessions are used exclusively for the Parks system as these funds are deposited in the Parks and Recreation Fund, not the City General Fund. Swimming pool fees and charges are set by City Council. Confirmations Sorry, we cannot confirm class registration by mail or phone, but we will notify you by phone if your class is postponed or cancelled. Refunds Refunds: It is the policy of Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Associated Recreation Council that: -Anyone who registers for a class, camp, and special event or program that is cancelled for any reason by Parks and Recreation or the Advisory Council will receive a full refund. -Anyone who registers for a day camp, trip, overnight camp, special event, or facility rental, and who requests a refund 14 days or more before its start (or before the second session of a class), may receive a refund, minus a service charge of $5 or 10% of the class fee (whichever is greater). -Anyone who registers for a day camp, trip, overnight camp, special event, or facility rental, and who withdraws from the activity fewer than 14 days before its start (or after the second session of a class), will receive no refund. -A transfer from one class to another is permitted without cost if done on the same business day as the original registration, and is subject to space availability. -No fee is charged for a transfer initiated by Seattle Parks and Recreation staff when done to correct an error in registration or allow for a better recreation opportunity. For full details of the Department’s Refund Policy, please see Policy Number 060-P 7.16. The policy has changed but is not yet available at print time. Please check with your recreation center staff for details regarding the changes.
