Registration Options

Residency Information
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.
  • Two proofs of residency are required at the time of registration to receive the resident rate. Examples of proof are a valid driver's license, check with address, utility bill, or bank statement.
  • Working Residents must work a minimum 20 hours a week for a company in the City limits of Worthington. Verification of payment of Worthington City taxes is required at the time of registration to receive discount price. Acceptable verification is an original pay stub, dated within 30 days, that specifically denotes Worthington taxed being withheld.

Photograph Policy
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 Department’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.
