Spring 2018 registration begins Feb. 5

The City of Ann Arbor is happy to offer an online 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, allows participants will be able to search and view all classes and programs online in the comfort of their own homes.

Rec1 allows 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 (PDF) 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 c​ity'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.

The 2018 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 2018 Spring Sumer Activities Guide. (PDF) You can also take home a copy from any parks facility as well as the libraries and Larcom City Hall starting the week of Feb. 5
