The Crystal Lake Park District publishes three seasonal brochures annually (WINTER/SPRING, SUMMER and FALL.) The brochure is delivered to all residents in the 60012 and 60014 zip codes. On the day the brochures are delivered to the post office, our registration system is active beginning at 9 AM.
summer 2023 Registration ALERT
All residences in the 60012 and 60014 zip codes will receive a printed guide in the mail during the week of May 8-12, 2023.
Help us keep programs alive for you! If you register at the last minute, the program you want may not be there when you need it. At some point, we have to decide if enrollment is sufficient to hold our programs. Wait too long and the program you want may be cancelled due to low enrollment. Unless noted, the program registration deadline is 3 days prior to the program start.
