Residency & Improper Registration
Recreation program residency rates apply to everyone who lives within Park District of Highland Park boundaries and pays Park District of Highland Park taxes, including residents of Fort Sheridan (60037); portions of the Town of Fort Sheridan that lie within Park District boundaries (60035); and Park District of Highland Park taxpayers who reside on the following Kings Cove (Deerfield) streets: Carriage Way, Bent Creek Ridge, Fox Hunt Trail, Millstone Road, Shag Bark Lane, Smoke Tree Road, and Tanglewood Court.
All other Deerfield street addresses do not pay Park District of Highland Park taxes and are, therefore, non-residents of the Park District. Non-residents pay a higher fee for most programs.
Proof of Park District of Highland Park residency in the form of a valid Driver’s License or Illinois State ID may be required for registration. Anyone who improperly uses a Highland Park address for Park District program registration will be removed from the class without a refund or transfer.
Note: Non-residents are not eligible for resident fees even if their caretaker provider or relative is a Highland Park resident.
