CONFIRMATIONS

PHOTO POLICY

CLASS CANCELLATION

BEHAVIOR

Will I receive a confirmation that I am enrolled in a class when I mail my registration? If you have an e-mail associated with your account, a receipt will automatically be e-mailed to you. You will be notified if a class is cancelled or changed. Why would my program be cancelled? All Parks and Recreation Programs are run assuming minimum numbers are met. If registration does not meet the stated minimum, we will cancel the program a few days before it is set to begin. In this case, participants will be contacted and will receive a full refund.

WEATHER CANCELLATIONS

Classes will automatically be cancelled on days when Urbandale Schools are closed due to weather. Evening classes will be cancelled if Urbandale Schools release early due to weather. Classes cancelled because of weather will be made up whenever possible.

REFUND POLICY

Registration fees for programs cancelled by Parks and Recreation will be fully refunded. Our instructors, in most instances, are hired on the basis of enrollment. For this reason, participant cancellations will be eligible for a refund ONLY if cancellation is made before the registration deadline. Refunds may take up to 2 to 3 weeks.

TUITION ASSISTANCE

The City of Urbandale and Urbandale Parks and Recreation recognizes that, under certain circumstances, individuals cannot afford the program fees. If you are unable to pay full tuition for any of the Parks and Recreation programs, call the Parks and Recreation office at 278-3963. Tuition assistance is available for Urbandale residents only, under age 18.

LOCATIONS

Many classes are held at Urbandale and Waukee Schools. When the class location says “High School”, that indicates “Urbandale High School”. The City of Urbandale would like to thank the Urbandale and Waukee Community School Districts for allowing free use of school facilities! Please be aware that schedules may change due to school events.

Urbandale was incorporated on April 16, 1917.

Do you want to get involved in helping your community, but don’t have a lot of time? We have an easy opportunity for you! Help keep Urbandale beautiful by picking up trash! We know it isn’t glamorous, but it’s a HUGE part of keeping our Urbandale Parks clean. Picking up trash is simple and anyone can do it! Early spring is a great time for trash pick-up, after the winter winds are done. Stop by our office anytime during office hours and we will even provide the bags and gloves.

WHERE, OH WHERE CAN MY LITTLE DOG GO?

Here’s the scoop! Dogs and their owners are welcome in many of our parks – as long as the pets are on a leash at all times and owners clean up after their animals. However, make no bones about it! We can’t sidestep the issue of pet waste. Out of courtesy to others using the parks, pet owners must take responsibility and help to keep our parks clean. Please bring a scooper and/or bag with you when you enjoy the parks with your four-legged friends. Appreciation and thanks are extended to responsible pet owners who, along with their pets, respect other park users and the park system.

BIKE TRAILS

Urbandale has an extensive bike trail system. A map of the bike trails is in the center of this guide. Additional maps are available at the Parks and Recreation office. If you are sponsoring an activity that includes the use of the bike trails, there are guidelines that need to be followed. Please call the Parks and Recreation office at 278-3963 for more information.

MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION

The majority of our programs are held on school grounds. As such, there is to be no smoking or consuming of alcoholic beverages on school grounds – by participants or spectators! We schedule our activities in cooperation with the Urbandale and Waukee School Districts, but unforeseen conflicts do arise. Please be understanding when times or locations have to be changed – school programs do have first priority! Programs also come up during the year that have not been included in our Program Guide. Look for press releases in the Urbandale Register and our website at www. urbandale.org regarding upcoming activities offered by Urbandale Parks and Recreation.

TENNIS COURTS

Tennis courts are located at South Karen Acres Park, Walker Johnston Park, and Lions Park. All courts are open to the public FREE of charge except at times when there are instruction classes and competitions. Please honor these exceptions. Court courtesy applies. Parks close at 10:30 p.m.

PICKLEBALL COURT

The additional lines painted on the Lions Park Tennis courts are for Pickleball! What is that? It's OVERSIZED ping pong! Played with a ball a little smaller than a whiffle ball, pickleball is a paddle sport for all ages and all athletic ability levels. Just use a paddle to keep the plastic ball going back and forth over a net until somebody messes up. Have Fun!

EQUIPMENT RENTALS

For your back yard get-together, family picnic, etc., rent some sports equipment that will provide you and your guests with a day of fun! Kits include: Horseshoe Set, Bocce Ball Set, Bean Bag Toss, and Badminton racquets. Per game, the rental fee is $10 for up to 3 days, with a $20 deposit. Call Urbandale Parks and Recreation at 278-3963 to reserve your equipment!

PLEASE DON’T FEED THE WATERFOWL!

While it may be tempting to feed the ducks and geese at City Parks, doing so is actually quite harmful. Human food causes malnutrition in waterfowl. Their delayed migration as a result, increases disease, erodes the landscape, and pollutes the water. Please help us preserve the balance of nature, the beauty of the parks and quality of life for neighbors – do not feed the ducks and geese! Thank you for your cooperation. For more information, contact Urbandale Parks & Recreation at 278-3963.

SKATE PARK

The City of Urbandale offers a skateboard park for area boarders. The park is located at Walker Johnston Park, 9000 Douglas Avenue. Boarders can enjoy an area with two sets of stairs with rails, two 20-foot wide escalated quarter pipes, a street spine, a 90-degree bank street hip, and a fun box. Please observe posted rules and regulations at the park. The skate park is tobacco-free. Thank you!

Zumba Fitness Zumba Fitness takes the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective and super fun! Each class will end with floor work and stretching. Bring a mat, towel and water. Wear workout clothes and sneakers with a smooth bottom. Session lasts 5 weeks. Instructor: Ildiko Timmerman.
