Age Requirements & Exceptions

Appropriate age levels are established to ensure a rewarding experience for all. Individuals who do not meet the age requirements of a class must obtain an approval from a supervisor. Requests are considered on a case-by-case basis. If approved, enrollment will be subject to program availability at time of approval and registration will need to be completed in person.

Age exceptions will not be considered for preschool students who must be age appropriate by September 1.

Virtual Waiting Room for Summer Camp

The Park District’s software vendor, Vermont Systems Inc, has implemented a virtual waiting room feature that is applied to our Summer Camp Registration on the day registration opens. The virtual waiting room helps manage this high-volume registration event, ensuring that user volume does not exceed the website’s ability to provide a responsive registration experience.

Did You Know?

Some residences are within the boundaries of the City of Park Ridge but not wholly or partially within the Park District. Those residents are eligible to purchase an annual buy-in. The buy-in provides your household with resident rates on Park District programs and facilities for one-year from the date of purchase. (Please be aware, you must still wait until non-resident registration begins to register for programs.) The cost of the buy-in option is based on the assessed value of your property multiplied by the last known tax rate of the Park Ridge Park District.

Please call 847-692-5127 for more details.


Most programs will have a number of waitlist spots available once a program becomes full. When registering online and the class reads as FULL - this means we have met the maximum number of waitlisted spots available for that program. We encourage patrons to sign up for the waitlist, as plans often change and spots may open. We will reach out to the waitlist in the order registered if spots become available in the program.

Youth Sports Leagues Registration

To give our staff time to form teams and find coaches, registration for our in-house sports leagues generally take place with the seasonal guide prior to season the league begins. Example: Winter House Basketball League will be found in our Autumn Brochure; Fall Soccer will be found in our Summer Brochure, etc.
