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.

fall 2021 Registration Alert

Please note: We are not mailing out a fall 2021 program guide. Due to the evolving CDC guidelines surrounding athletics, programs and events, we have made the decision to provide the fall guide in digital format so that updates can be made as the need arises. The fall guide is 'live' and registration is open.

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.
