The Madison Parks & Recreation
Department is concerned with improving and enriching the
quality of each participant's life. Recreation
programs are open to all persons regardless of race, color,
national origin, age, or disability and are designed for the
enjoyment of all area youth. Although a fee must be
charged to help offset the costs incurred, we realize there
are situations that make it difficult for some to
participate. If this is the case, please make the
necessary arrangements for reduced fee to be applied for programs by
contacting the Recreation Office prior to registration.
No arrangements will be made during or after registration.
If your child drops out of a program or cannot attend for an
extended period of time, please let the instructor or
Recreation Office know. There may be others on waiting
lists that would like to participate.
All pets must be on a leash in park areas. Pet owners
are responsible for cleanup of pet waste.
