Day One Of Fall Registration A Success!


Today, just one hour after the start of online registration, the Chicago Park District successfully processed more than 7,100 transactions for fall programs. This is the first session that the Chicago Park District implemented its new two-day registration schedule to accommodate the extremely high volume of patrons registering for park programs.

Parks located west of California Avenue began registration today. Parks located east of California Avenue will begin registration tomorrow, Tuesday, Aug. 21 at 9 a.m.

"Fall registration is off to a great start," said Chicago Park District General Superintendent and CEO Mike Kelly. "We're receiving favorable response from our patrons and are working diligently to ensure that tomorrow's registration is as equally successful."

In addition to the new schedule, significant changes were made to the online registration system by ACTIVE Network, the Chicago Park District’s web vendor.  ACTIVE Network has re-engineered the software to better process rush registrations and ran extensive tests to replicate customer activity.

In-person registration begins either Saturday, August 25 or Monday, August 27, depending upon the park. To check when a particular park is beginning online and in-person registration, click here.

Fall programs run from the week of Sept. 24 to the week of Dec. 3. View the fall registration web page for more information on these changes.
