Welcome to the Town of Monroe Parks & Recreation Department

Reasons to register when a program becomes available on-line right away! 
Many classes are very popular and people know that in order to get a spot, they need to register early. But there are also reasons to register early for classes that don't usually fill up.  All of our classes are self supporting and we must reach minimum enrollment for a class to run. There is a point (usually about a week before the program is due to start) that a program must be cancelled if there aren't enough people registered. Very often people want to register after the program has been cancelled. If the registrations were done earlier, in most cases, the program would have run. All programs require a high level of coordination often including facility scheduling, staffing, and purchasing of supplies.
So, if you know you want to take a class, please register early. Then everyone will get a chance to participate. 

Our Cancellation/Withdrawal from all programs procedure has changed! (as of 11/6/23 by our Parks & Recreation Commission)  
Effective December 1, 2023
Monroe Parks and Recreation Department programs are self-funded. The fees you paid for these programs are used to cover the cost of instructors, facilities and supplies. It is important to have full registration in all programs to provide the opportunity for participation and for the program to run. When you are thinking about registering for a program, please note our new policy for cancelling/withdrawing your spot.
If you need to cancel/withdraw 14 days or more prior to the start of the program you will be only refunded 50 % of the total program cost and the other 50% is the cancellation fee and will be retained by the department.
If you need to cancel/withdraw 13 days or less prior to the start of the program you will get an account credit of 50% of the total program cost and the other 50% is the cancellation fee and will be retained by the department.
After the start of any program you are registered for there are No Refunds/Credits given.
A full refund will only be given if the request is in writing with a documented medical note submitted by a physician due to an illness/injury prior to the start of program. If one started a program and can’t continue due to an injury/illness, a pro-rated refund will be given, but a documented medical note is still required.
If the Monroe Parks and Recreation Department cancels a program due to insufficient enrollment a full refund will be given. There are no refunds/credits when we reschedule a program class due to weather/unforeseen circumstance or facility changes and we provide a make-up class to attend.
