The Griswold Center offers a balance of programs in arts, drama, sports, fitness and education, along with a variety of trips! All of our programs and events are published on a quarterly basis in the Griswold Activity Brochure.
Griswold program registration is held on a monthly basis. The first three days of registration each month are reserved for Griswold Center members and give priority based on residency. After the third day of member registration, registration is available to all adults 18 years and older.
Online registration begins at 9:00 AM (same time as in-person) through our registration site.
If you are new to Worthington Parks and Recreation please create an account online. Those who work in the City of Worthington qualify for the resident rate and are required to show proof that they pay Worthington City taxes. Please stop by the Griswold Center to set up your account prior to registration.
In–person registration begins at 9:00 AM. Payment is due at the time of registration. We accept cash, check and all major credit cards. Participants may register for three additional households other than their own.
Mail a completed registration form and your check made payable to:
Worthington Parks and Recreation
777 High St
Worthington, Ohio 43085
PDF versions of the Registration Forms can be found under Forms and Resources. Please note any mailed or dropped off registration forms will be processed after 4:00 PM on your respective registration day (after all in-person registrations have been processed).
All Griswold Trips will depart from the Griswold Center at the time listed in the brochure. Transportation to the Griswold Center is available for all Worthington residents, including Melbourne, Stafford and The Residences of Worthington, upon request. Pick-ups for those needing transportation to the Griswold Center will begin 30 minutes before the departure time listed. Please call the Center if you have any transportation questions.
Photographs/videos are occasionally taken of participants of activities and visitors to facilities of the Worthington Parks and Recreation Department. These photographs/videos are used to promote Parks and Recreation programming and facilities in future Activity Brochures and a variety of other City of Worthington publications and social media. If you prefer that you or your child not be photographed during a registered program, you must “opt-out” on or before the first day of each listed course by completing an “opt-out” form at the Center's registration desk. For any non-registered activities or visits to our parks or facilities, please notify the photographer if you prefer that you or your child not be photographed.
Resident fees apply to those who live or work in the city limits of Worthington, including spouses and school-aged children of those households. These households pay taxes that support the Worthington Parks and Recreation Department and therefore pay the resident rate for memberships, programs, and rentals. All others pay the listed non-resident rate.
