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.

ABOUT THE COVER

Urbandale Centennial Shelter

In 2017 Urbandale is celebrating its 100th Centennial. To recognize this significant year of existence, the City of Urbandale has named and dedicated the new open shelter in the NW corner of Lions Park “Centennial Shelter.” A ribbon cutting for the event was held on June 27, 2017. Jan Herke, Director of Parks and Recreation stated, “of the 54 parks in Urbandale’s park system, Lions Park is one of the most popular and frequently used. We are thrilled to have this new open shelter at the park for all our residents and visitors to the community to enjoy. Having it named “Centennial” Shelter provides a wonderful opportunity to commemorate our 100th year celebration and acknowledge the monumental year for decades to come.”

The City would like to ACKNOWLEDGE and THANK the following groups and businesses who donated to help fund the shelter project: 4th of July Committee, UCAN-Friend of the Parks, Urbandale Lions Club and Kness Signs.

Occasionally photos may be taken of participants in the programs, classes, and activities or of people in the district’s parks. Please be aware that these photos may be used in future program guides, brochures, web site, pamphlets, flyers or news releases. In keeping with our program goals, we encourage fun for all of our participants. However, certain rules are necessary to ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment. Participants are expected to: 1. Show respect for all participants and staff. 2. Refrain from using foul language. 3. Refrain from causing bodily harm to other participants or staff. 4. Show respect for equipment, supplies and facilities. If our staff has concerns about a participant’s behavior, the adult participant or child’s parent/guardian will be consulted immediately. If inappropriate behavior continues, we will re-evaluate the participant's enrollment.

WAITING LISTS

Waiting lists are kept for classes that have reached maximum enrollment. We make every possible effort to add or expand these classes, depending on instructor and space availability. Names will remain on the waiting list until the day the program begins, in case an opening becomes available. Participants on the waiting list will be contacted if an opening becomes available.

INSURANCE AND WAIVERS OF LIABILITY

Individual accident and medical insurance for program participants is not provided by the City of Urbandale or Urbandale or Waukee School Districts. To participate in any Parks and Recreation Program, you must sign a waiver releasing the city and school districts from any and all liability. The waiver is on the registration form. It must be signed prior to participating in a program.

City of Urbandale Flags ONLY $35

The City of Urbandale has 3 x 5 flags for sale. Purchase them at Urbandale City Hall.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY WE NEED YOUR HELP!

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. If you want, we can even pick up the bags when you are done!

Thank you for your help!

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.

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.

Barre is a low-impact class that will target and tone your body through exercises inspired by ballet and other disciplines like yoga and pilates.

Yoga Basics with Beth

Yoga with Beth For many years, yoga has helped people of all ages and walks of life improve their sense of health and well-being. Yoga combines fluid movements with focused and attentive breathing. This aligns the mind and spirit with the physical body, creating a perfect “union”, or “yoga”. In today’s hectic world, daily stresses and constant mental distractions put tension into our bodies, sometimes to the point of making us ill. The purpose of yoga is to soothe the inner spirit by calming the mind and body. Yoga poses help slow us down, and we naturally become more focused and relaxed. As students grow in their yoga experience, the poses become more challenging, allowing the body to grow stronger and more limber. At any level, the benefits of yoga are the samestronger muscular endurance, sharpened mental clarity, deeper flexibility, improved circulation and immunity and above all a heightened sense of well-being. Let yoga start you on a journey you can enjoy for a lifetime-body, mind and spirit! This class is for active individuals who are injuryfree. Sessions last 6, 7 or 8 weeks.  Instructor: Beth Damm.
