Residents can now register and pay online for classes and programs offered by the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department. The new service at http://lincoln.ne.gov/aspx/city/proctor/ was announced just as the new summer program guides are being mailed. Those who do not receive the guide through the mail or in their newspaper can find it online and at all Parks and Recreation facilities beginning Tuesday May 29.
"We are proud to offer a wide variety of programs and activities for all ages," said Parks and Recreation Director Lynn Johnson. "We encourage residents to use the new online registration system that allows them to review program offerings and to register from the comfort and convenience of their home computer. We also hope residents will take advantage of the many opportunities Parks and Recreation offer to be active and have fun."
Johnson thanked the City's Information Services Division for its work on the online registration system, the latest e-pay service offered at lincoln.ne.gov.
In addition to the program guide and the online registration, the Parks and Recreation website also includes information on summer day camps and on public swimming pools which open Saturday. All neighborhood pools are open from 1 to 6 p.m. daily. Highlands and University Place pools are open from 1 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1 to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Star City Shores is open every day from 12:30 to 8 p.m. Season passes are still available for all locations, and several pools will again offer $5 family swim nights during the week. All locations will remain open until August 12.
