The Park District of Forest Park is proud to offer a variety of programs for all ages.



PLEASE NOTE: Early registration is strongly recommended. Registration deadlines for programs and trips are one week prior to their start date unless otherwise noted in the program description in the brochure.

Classes, programs and trips have minimum requirements. Unfortunately, if the minimum is not met within a week of the start date, we must cancel the program, so…

Avoid disappointment— Please register early!!!

When maximum enrollment is met in a class, a waiting list will be started and an attempt will be made to create additional classes. The Park District reserves the right to cancel, postpone or combine classes. If insufficient enrollment causes a program to be cancelled, notification will be given and a full refund will be made.

Registration forms and waivers are required for all programs. Registration must be completed through the Administrative Office at 7501 Harrison Street. Instructors cannot accept registration.

Three forms of proof of residency are required in order to receive resident rate. Driver’s License or State ID will be accepted. Utility bills, voters cards, lease, etc. will be accepted only along with a valid picture ID. Parents may be asked to provide proof of residency and family relation for child(ren) and, for some programs, proof of age will be required.

All registration is taken on a first come, first serve basis. No space will be held unless fees are paid. Persons are not considered registered in any program unless full payment is received in the Administrative Office.

The Park District accepts cash, check, Visa, MasterCard & Discover only for payment of fees.

Please note: the Park District does not pro-rate program, DayCamp or FunCamp fees.

Non-residents and residents who have proven residency within the past year may register by phone or fax with a credit card or by mail with check or credit card. (Visa and Mastercard are accepted.) If residency has not been established, walk-in registration with three forms of proof of residency is required in order to be eligible for the resident rate.
