In an effort to make getting active with Gilbert Parks and Recreation even easier, we’re transitioning to a new, user-friendly online registration system, ActiveNet.
Starting December 2nd, all current and new Gilbert Parks and Recreation users will be required to sign up for a new account.
Users will be able to use this new system when registering for the winter session programs on December 13th and thereafter.
Not participating in any classes or programs during the winter session? No worries, we still encourage you to sign up for your new account because it will be required when you’re ready to register for your next program or class.
For instructions on how to create an account view the video below or, click here to download a step-by-step guide.
