Spring Online Registration Takes Place Feb. 25-26


In order to ensure a successful registration session for spring programs, signing up online for Chicago Park District offerings will continue to take place over two days and in two different zones.

  • Parks located west of California Avenue will begin registration Monday, Feb. 25 at 9 a.m. 
  • Parks located east of California Avenue will begin registration Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 9 a.m. 

In-person registration begins either Saturday, March 2 or Monday, March 4 depending upon the park.

Spring programs can be viewed and wish lists can be created online beginning Monday, Feb. 11.  Spring programs run from the week of April 1 to the week of June 3.

The Chicago Park District experienced record numbers in 2012 for program registration.  Compared to 2011, last summer saw a 20% increase in children enrolled in summer programs, and fall registration was up nearly 25%.  Given the popularity of programs, patrons are encouraged to follow the registration tips listed below.

Preparing for Registration Day

  • Set up an account on the new registration system if you haven’t already.  The new registration system took effect with spring 2012 registration.
  • Add all persons who you plan to register for on your account.
  • Check your account login and password before registration begins.  If you experience any problems, this will allow time to contact the Chicago Park District for assistance.
  • Review your account information and make changes as needed, with specific focus on the following questions that were recently added:
    • School information.
    • Child pick up (who can/who can’t pick up your child), and the ability for your child to walk home on his/her own.
  • Create a wish list with the programs that you plan to register.
  • Review screen shots of the registration process.

View the registration process page for more information on these changes.
