Just a reminder that if you are outside of the Parks and Rec District, you will pay an extra 25% for registrations. When you register, be sure you are using the County GIS (Geographic Information System) address. The one you use for the post office might be different, and if your address isn't recognized by our system, you may be charged incorrectly. We are working hard to figure out how to allow homeowners outside the district to opt in, but it may take a while longer to figure this out. We are on it and will let you know as soon as we have accurate information.

We want to thank you for the opportunity to provide healthy activities and beautiful spaces for you and your family to enjoy. We serve on this board of directors because we love our parks and are so proud of the commitment of this community to provide more green space for its people than any other town our size. Our promise is to keep you and the needs of our whole community in mind as we plan for future growth and activities.

You count on us to stay informed and we depend on you to fund our efforts. Quality local journalism takes time and money. Please support us to protect the future of community journalism.
