Please review the following, most frequently accessed policy and guideline information. For assistance or clarification Recreation@ WylieTexas.gov. ACTIVITY SATISFACTION GUARANTEE So you tried Macramé Comeback and it just wasn’t for you. A full refund is available through the first day of most contracted courses. If you are dissatisfied with the quality of a registered activity, please contact a staff person, immediately so we may have an opportunity to solve the problem. DON’T MISS A THING! Activity registrations are available on a first-come, first-served basis with full payment. Register early and guarantee your spot before maximum enrollment is met. Full payment and waiver are required prior to participation. Allow time for your front desk registration or skip the line and register online.
