The senior trips, luncheons, and contracted classes/special events are not refundable due to contract agreements. However, we’ll be happy to help you sell your tickets if a waiting list has formed. All regular non-contract recreation programs are refundable for any unused classes from the time the refund request is received, and of course, the Park District Programs have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. No refunds will be given after a program has ended.
Please don’t wait until the last minute to register for a program. At some point prior to the first class, we need to decide if enrollment is sufficient to hold the class.
Do you have a class or recreation program you would like to see offered? We’re always looking for new ideas and instructors to teach. Contact Paula Barans, Recreation Supervisor, at 847-797-5341 with your ideas.
The senior program classes and tours are very popular and have maximum numbers that we can accommodate. If your registration is put on a "wait list" for a class, tour, or special event, the Park District staff will make a courtesy call to notify you of your status. If you have any questions regarding a refund for a Senior Program, please call 847-797-5341.
Seniors, 50 years and over, receive priority registration starting on the first day of resident registration. Partrons under age 50, may register starting on the non-resident registration date at no additional fee in the Park District office and the Senior Center provided space is available.
