Enrollment Policies
Please make a point to pre-enroll in any programs you are interested in attending. Programs not meeting minimum enrollment prior to the start date will be canceled, and some programs may have a registration deadline that will impose late registration fees.

Enroll online for any program or location at or in person at the Community Center. If a program becomes full, there may be another location available or we can place those still interested in participating on a waitlist.

Cost and Payment Policies
A 25 percent additional fee will be added for non-residents of the City of Tulsa on all rental and programming costs, but senior citizen discounts and scholarships are available for some programs. Speak with a park staff member for more details.

Some programs require a partial deposit to be paid immediately upon enrollment to hold your registered spot, and full payment for the program is due before the program start date. Payments can be made online or in person, and we accept Visa/Mastercard credit cards or cash only.

Program Change Policies
Changes to the program are made based on current enrollment numbers, health and safety concerns or when needed by the instructor and can mean a change in day or time of the program, as well as location, program size, changes or restrictions in program content or even cancellation of the program. When a change to a program is made, we will contact all enrolled participants with information about the change as soon as possible. If a participant no longer wants to attend the changed program, a full or partial refund will be issued.

ID Cards
All patrons ages 10 and older must obtain a FREE Tulsa Parks ID card to participate in activities at any Tulsa Parks Community Center. Please ask recreation staff for more details.

Bullying & Discrimination
Bullying and discrimination are real, and taken seriously by Tulsa Parks and the City of Tulsa. Bullying or discriminatory behavior by any patron will not be tolerated within our facility or park grounds. You can read our full bullying and discrimination policy online. Tulsa Parks also provides an anti-bullying agreement for many of our youth programs and camps. You can read our Anti-Bullying Agreement form online.
