Annually, more than 350,000 people participate in thousands of sports, recreational, cultural and environmental programs offered by the Chicago Park District. Program opportunities, fitness center memberships and lap swim memberships are available for people of all ages and abilities, in neighborhood parks throughout the city.
Most programs are offered through four seasonal sessions: winter, spring, summer and fall. Registration may be available online and/or in-person, depending on the park. Online registration is divided into two zones over two days. The zones are defined by California Avenue (2800 W.). Parks located west of California Ave. begin registration on the first of two registration days each season, and parks located east of California Avenue begin online registration the following day. Memberships begin the day purchased. Length of memberships vary. Learn more below.
