The balance will be applied to your household account to use for a future program. If the refund is due to medical reasons, a full refund will be issued as long as your request is accompanied by a doctor’s note. The Monroe Parks and Recreation Department reserves the right to change schedules/locations as necessary and cancel programs due to insufficient registration or lack of instructor(s).
  • REMINDER: If school is cancelled or is closed early due to weather, all programs scheduled for Board of Education facilities will be cancelled.

Welcome to the Town of Monroe Parks & Recreation Department

Reasons to Register Early!

Many classes are very popular and people know that in order to get a spot, they need to register early.

But there are also reasons to register early for classes that don't usually fill up. All of our classes are self supporting and we must reach minimum enrollment for a class to run. There is a point (usually about three days before the program is due to start) that a program must be cancelled if there aren't enough people registered. Very often people register after the program has been cancelled. If the registrations were done earlier, in many cases, the program would have run. All programs require a high level of coordination often including facility scheduling, staffing and purchasing of supplies. So, if you know you want to take a class, please register early. Then everyone will get a chance to participate.
========================================================================================================================================================

$10 fee will be assessed to all registrations created in the Parks and Recreation office.

If paying by check you will not be registered for the program until we have received payment.  When paying by check the Monroe Police Department requires that you include your drivers license number on the check.  Checks not including this will be returned and registration will not be processed.
