Do you have your Household ID and PIN ready for online registration? You have one if you’ve ever registered for a park district program. If you need help, call 847-391-5700 or 847-391-5711, or email Registration@DPParks.org. We will email your ID number to you. (Park district staff cannot access your personal information, and cannot tell you your ID number on the phone.)
Everyone living in the City of Des Plaines is eligible for resident rates: You no longer have to reside within the boundaries of the Des Plaines Park District. Map of park district boundaries.
Do you work in Des Plaines? You are also eligible for resident rates in all of our facilities and as a participant in any of our programs.
Non-residents: If you register for Creative Corners Preschool, our School of Dance program, fitness classes all year, a Prairie Lakes Fitness Center or Aquatic Center membership, you might benefit from purchasing an annual Resident Status Card. The card is $250, good for a full year from the date of purchase, and makes you eligible to pay resident rates for all programs, memberships and pool passes. Ask about it when you register.
