HOW TO REGISTER

WELCOME! We are excited to announce the launch of a new recreation registration software program, CivicRec, which will make it even easier for you to browse our recreational offerings and events, and register for the programs you love. This Program Guide has been a great tool for many years, but with the addition of an improved online system, we will be looking at other ways to get information out to residents in new and creative ways, so be on the lookout for those exciting changes! Some of you may recall that the first edition of our Program Guide was published in the fall of 2013 and was only 16 pages. Fast forward to the fall of 2019, and the guide has expanded to 40 pages! The growth of programs, events and facilities has been awesome, and I want to thank you for your support and participation. Enjoy exploring our Fall 2019 Program Guide, and be on the lookout for new and improved promotional material in early 2020! See you in the parks!
