Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q.  I am a returning participant.  Don't I already have an account with the Parks & Recreation Department?

Q.  Whose name should be on the household account?

A.  The "Primary Contact" should be the person responsible for paying for classes and programs.  Additional family members, such as a spouse or children, can be added after the account is created.


Q.  How much does it cost to create a household account?

A.  There is no cost to create a household account.


Q.  Do I need an email address to create an account?

A.  An email address is required in order to create an account.  Free email accounts can be created through services such as Gmail and Yahoo.


Q.  Will I need a password to use the system?

A.  When you first create an account, a temporary password will be assigned.  A link will be sent to the email address you provided, and you will be prompted to change the temporary password to the new one you choose.


Q.  What if I forget my password?

A.   If you forget your password, the system will prompt you to create a new one.  You may also contact the Parks and Recreation Department for assistance in resetting your password.


Q.  Can I add dependents to my account?

A.  Children can be added to your account.  To do so, click on the "Profile" tab, and scroll to the bottom of the page.  You will see a button to "add" Relationships/Dependents.    Once you are on the "Contact Details" page, be sure to check the box indicating that the contact information for the child is the "same as parent/guardian."
