Program and Course Registration Process
To register for recreation programs/courses you will need to set up a Family Account that includes all members of your family. You only need to do this once. If you are not sure if you already have an account, call (415) 831-6800 to find out. Duplicate account set up can affect scholarships or memberships being properly applied.
How do I register for a course?
Before registering for a class or program, you must first set up a Family Account with Rec & Park. Then, visit www.sfreconline.org to register.
