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.
NEW! Residency privilege is extended to Kindergarten through Grade 8 students living in the geographic boundaries of North Shore School District 112 and students Grade 9 through 12 living in the geographic boundaries of Highland Park High School. Parents of these children are not eligible for resident fees (some exclusions may apply).
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. To receive resident rates:
- Call the registration team at 847.831.3810 to ensure your account is set up correctly.
- Register online or in-person at the Recreation Center of Highland Park, 1207 Park Ave West.
- One form of proof of Highwood residency is required at the time of registration (IL Driver’s License, IL State ID, lease agreement, real estate tax bill, real estate contract, or utility bill).
Those who register for Park District programs and improperly use a Highland Park address are removed from the class and no refund or transfer is given. Non-residents pay a higher fee per program. Note: Non-residents are not eligible for resident fees even if their caretaker provider/relative is a Highland Park resident.
