Household Member Criteria
Anyone living at a residence located within the Glenview Park District is considered to be a member of that household.
Waiting List Policies and Second Choice Practices:
- If you only select a first choice and it is full, your payment will be processed and you will be put on the waiting list for that section.
- If you list a second choice option and your first choice is full, your payment will be processed and you will be placed into your second choice if there is an opening. If your second choice is also full, you will be placed on the waiting list of your first choice only.
- Participants may only be added to a wait list section if they have not been accepted into another section of that same class. Once the participant has been accommodated into a section of the program, they may not maintain a waiting list spot on any other section for that same program.
- Participants may be placed on a maximum of one waiting list section of any program.To be added to a waiting list, a program registration form must be completed and the program fee paid in full. You may not be added to a waiting list by phone call or hand written note. The position on the waiting list is based upon when the registration form is processed by the District.
- If after two meetings of the program, you have not been accommodated into the program, your payment will be refunded in full.
Transfers are allowed after lotteries and up to 24 hours after the first class meeting. This timetable provides the flexibility for a participant to try a class while helping the District assess changes in class availability before too many classes have occurred.
Forms of Payment
The Glenview Park District accepts cash, checks, Mastercard, Visa, Discover card and the Glenview Park District gift card. You must register in person to use a gift card for payment. If paying by check, the checks should be made payable to Glenview Park District. A $20 processing fee is charged for returned checks.
If you are registering online or from the digital brochure, you will be able to print your own receipt. If you are registering in person, you will be given the choice of a paper receipt or an e-mailed receipt at the time of registration. If you mail/fax your registration, your receipt will be e-mailed or mailed to you. If you are placed on a wait list, the initial receipt will show that you are on the wait list and you will receive an updated receipt only you have been place in the class. In the event your program is cancelled, you will be notified and your program fee refunded.
The park district does not carry medical or accident insurance for program participants.
Waiver & Release Forms

Register early for programs! Some classes fill up very quickly. If you wait too long to register, it might be too late. Unfortunately, in some circumstances, we have no choice but to cancel a class if the minimum number of participants has not enrolled prior to start date.
Refunds will be granted up to 24 hours after the first class meeting. A 10% cancellation charge of the total fee per program will be assessed, minimum amount assessed $5 and a maximum amount of $15 per program. After this time, no refunds will be granted except for medical purposes or change in residence (proof required) and there will be a pro-rated refund based upon number of classes held. These regulations apply to recreation and instructional programs throughout the park district. They do not apply to Summer Camp and Clinic Programs, daily admissions, memberships, rentals, trips, specialized services, continuing skill programs or programs such as Park Center Preschool or Glenview Titan Aquatic Club. These services have specific policies as part of the information provided to the participant at the point of registration. To request a refund, you may call 847-724-5670 or fill out a refund form which must be returned in person to Park Center, 2400 Chestnut Ave. For your convenience, you may download a refund form by clicking here. Your refund is not guaranteed until your refund request has been reviewed to determine refund eligibility and approved by the program supervisor. Allow two weeks to receive your refund. Refunds will be issued net of any outstanding balances owed by you to the park district. If there is no outstanding balance, the refund will be made by check or credit card based upon the method of payment used at the time of registration. No refund checks issued under $2.00.
