            GENERAL INFORMATION                                                    REGISTRATION


Activity Enrollment
A minimum number of participants is required to hold programs.
The Department of Library and Recreation Services reserves the
right to cancel a program that does not meet this minimum and
participants will receive a full refund or credit. It is highly rec-
ommended that you pre-register as early as possible to avoid pro-
grams being cancelled due to lack of enrollment.

Activity Refund
For ongoing classes, participants may drop the class after they at-
tend the first meeting and receive a partial refund, but they must
file for a refund before the second class. No refunds will be is-
sued after the second class. If the participant cancels, he/she
must contact the Centennial Park Registration Office, and will be
subject to a minimum $7 service charge. Refunds for credit card
or cash registrations will be mailed from the City Finance De-
partment approximately two weeks after the request is received.
Refunds on checks will be issued after the check has cleared the
bank, which is generally within 30 days of receipt. In order to
avoid the $7 fee, a participant may choose to keep the money on
account to be used for another class. For classes only meeting
once, you must contact the Centennial Park Registration Office at
least five business days before the class starts.

Aquatic Cancellation/Refund
If your class has been cancelled by the department, you will re-
ceive a full refund OR the choice to transfer to another aquatic ac-
tivity. A refund check will be mailed from the City Finance
Department per the activity refund policy above. All customer
initiated cancellations are NON-REFUNDABLE but credit
may be applied to another activity offered.

Scholarships for all types of recreation programs; including
camps, classes, and sports programs, are available for income-
qualifying seniors and youth. Call 237-3988 or stop by Centen-
nial Park Registration Office for more information.
