Registration Policies


Where two prices are listed for a class, the first is the rate for residents of Brooklyn Park and second is for non-residents (res/non-res).  



We welcome people of all abilities to participate in our programs! Please let us know if you require an accommodation specific to a disability-related need, a behavioral support, an allergy, or other need for inclusion services. Please register early to allow adequate time to process requests. Please email Erin at for more information.  



Information requested when registering is classified as either “public” or “private” pursuant to the Minnesota Government Data Practice Act. The information is requested so the registration process can be completed, and persons can be notified for updated program information. You are not legally required to provide this information. The consequences of not providing information may be rejection of the registration or inability to send notification of program or scheduling changes to you. Private data will only be used by the City staff and others officially connected with the program for the purposes of administering the activity. Private data cannot be released to the public without your consent.  



Refunds will be given for cancellations three days prior to the start of the class (five days for swim classes) minus a $3 cancellation fee per class. There are no refunds for missed classes, for quitting after the class start date or for canceling a senior trip after the deadline.  



Transfers are available at no charge and must be made three days prior to the start of the class.  



When registering, you agree to allow yourself or your child to participate in the selected activity. In consideration of your registration, you and your heirs waive claims for damages you may have against the City of Brooklyn Park and its representatives, for any and all injuries from whatever cause suffered by the registered participant(s). Understand that the information provided will be distributed to individuals involved with each recreation program. I waive any possible claim regarding any possible exposure to or contraction of COVID during my participation in this activity.  


The City of Brooklyn Park often takes pictures and videos of participants enjoying activities and events in Brooklyn Park. These photos and videos may be used to promote our programs and events in the City’s marketing materials, website and social media sites. By attending our programs and events, you grant permission to use the pictures and videos of yourself or your children for the above purpose, unless otherwise noted.
