When can I register?

Can I register if I am not a resident?

Yes, we do have resident and non-resident fees and welcome non-resident registration.

What do I need to prove residency?

You will need a picture I.D. and a current utility bill to prove residency.

Am I a resident of the Alsip Park District?

Just as there are different boundaries for school districts, there are different  boundaries for park districts within a village.  Check your tax bill to see which park district you pay.


Can I get a refund for a park district program?

Refunds are only available if requested before two classes of the program session have expired.
A refund application must be filled out at the Apollo Recreation Center Main Office.

Refunds will not be granted for one-day seminars, trips or special events unless requested one week prior to seminar, special event or trip date. For programs with a registration deadline, refunds will not be made after the deadline. There is a $3.00 administrative fee on all refunds except when the Park District cancels a program. In this case a full refund will be issued.


Do you have any senior programs?

We do offer various senior fitness programs and our Senior Citizens Club meet at the Apollo Recreation Center the second and fourth Monday of the month from 11:30 am-3:00 pm.
