Early Registration Pilot Program: As part of our Parks Levy commitment, we're trying to help more people use our parks and activities, especially seniors, teens, people of color, immigrants, people with disabilities, and those with less money. We work with community groups to tell them about early sign-up times. This Early Registration Pilot Program helps new users by giving them information, setting up accounts, and offering assistance if they need it. Half of the spots for activities are available during this time. Groups that are interested in learning more can email
