If you are interested in planting a tree in memory or in honor of someone special, contact the Park District at 433-5360. Because the West Fargo Park District cares about patrons, the following policy was adopted. We ask all parents and guardians to be on time when picking up their child from a West Fargo Park District activity or facility. Any child not picked up 20 minutes after an activity ends is considered an “unattended child." Program leaders will remain on site until all patrons have left the premises. However, after 20 minutes, the West Fargo Police Department will be contacted to pick up the child and escort him/her to the proper authorities. Children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by an adult or a student age 14 or older.

Americans with Disabilities Act

We are committed to supporting the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you require special accommodations for participation in any activities or facilities, please contact the West Fargo Park District at 433-5360.

Activities and Event Evaluations

We invite you to take a moment to complete our online Evaluation Survey. Your feedback helps us make improvements to our programs. Log onto wfparks.org to complete an online survey to share your opinions. Complete a survey for each activity or program you attend. Thank you for your past input and suggestions.


Discovering Music New!

Tumbling Tuesdays

This parent/child class is a great introduction to music. Parents will work hands-on with their child while being lead by Chaycie Kramer, KinderMusik instructor. Participants will learn the fundamentals of music through singing, movement, marching and rhythm while playing with different musical instruments. Due to limited space, only the participant and one adult will be allowed to attend this class.

This 4-week class is designed for 3-5 year olds (both boys and girls) who are just beginning gymnastics. Participants will work on tumbling and the balance beam to further develop fine and gross motor skills. Movement and music are used with stations and small circuits, making learning gymnastics fun.
