Apply for a boat lock at Bandemer Park
The City of Ann Arbor is proud to accept a donation from the Huron River Watershed Council (HRWC) of six boat lockers that will be available for rent at Bandemer Park for the 2017 season. Arbor Parks and Recreation is excited to work with the HRWC to bring this feature to our parks. The lockers will help provide a convenient option for residents looking to use the river. Construction of the lockers is underway.
If you’re interested in applying for a locker you can complete an application and submit it to Larcom City Hall (customer service), Cobblestone Farm (customer service) and Gallup and Argo Canoe Liveries. Forms will be accepted from now through May 15.
Lockers assignments will be drawn on Tuesday, May 16. Applications can be picked up at the four locations listed above or by 2017_boat_rental_agreement.pdf
We are confident park users will enjoy having convenient access to their kayaks or canoes near the river.
2017 summer registration is now open
The City of Ann Arbor is happy to launch a new registration system, provided by Rec1, for our Parks and Recreation programs; as well as for our park reservations and much more. Using this new system, participants will be able to search and view all classes and programs online in the comfort of their own homes.
Rec1 will allow us to deliver superior service, while streamlining the process for our many patrons. However, this means that patrons will have to create new accounts in order to access the Rec1 registration services. Please see the
how to guide to set up your account.
Use Rec 1 Registration System to log into the new system and register. To verify your resident or nonresident status you can check using our online Residency Website.
The system will also draw directly from the City's property tax data to determine residency status. As a reminder, resident rates are for individuals or families residing in a dwelling for which taxes are paid to the City of Ann Arbor.
The integration between REC1 and the City's property tax data is very specific regarding how addresses are written. Due to variations in addresses, the system may occasionally identify a resident as a non-resident. The City recommends using
US Postal Service Standards for Street Names, Numeric Street Names, Directional information and Street Suffix Abbreviations when entering addresses into the Parks & Rec registration system. If you continue to have a residency issue, please verify the address using the City's
Online Tax Data service. For additional assistance, please contact customer service 734.794.6230 for help before checking out.
If you are a scholarship recipient, you cannot register online. We ask that you call our customer service office at 734.794.6230 and speak to a staff member that will walk you through the registration process over the phone.
Rec1 will also enable the Recreation Department to issue email receipts and confirmations, send text messages about cancellations, and give all registrants access to their program histories.
The 2017 activity guide, featuring swimming and golf lessons as well as volunteer opportunities, mermaid classes, summer day camps, cultural arts activities and more can be viewed in the activity guide.You can also take home a copy from any parks facility as well as the libraries and Larcom City Hall.
