Classes & Camps

The City of Hilliard, Recreation and Parks Department is excited to announce program options. Programming options that are typically printed in the Your Hilliard Newsletter & Program Guide will be announced on a monthly basis. All programs will require advanced registration, however, due to the uncertainty of the coronavirus, cancellations may still occur.

Hilliard’s COVID Safety Protocols

The City of Hilliard’s top priority is the safety of our participants, therefore, at the time of registration or arrival, all participants will sign a Covid User Agreement to participate in Recreation & Parks programming. The circumstances with Covid-19 are changing day to day, and that accordingly, the CDC guidelines are regularly modified and updated.

Our number one priority is to keep participants and staff safe, therefore we ask all participants to stay home if you are ill, take your temperature prior to arriving, wash your hands often, and wear a mask. There may be some programming that will have more specific requirements indicated by the Ohio Department of Health, CDC, or Franklin County Health Department and if that is the case, specific instructions will be emailed to participants prior to the program start date.

Register Online 24/7

If you are new to Hilliard Recreation and Parks, you must establish a RecTrac account. Within 72 business hours, our staff will verify your residency on the Franklin County Auditor’s website and activate your account. During this process, patrons will create their own username and password if setting up their account online. RecTrac will automatically create a username and password for patrons setting up accounts in person at the Community Center. With your existing or newly verified account, sign in with your username and password. Find classes by clicking “Search” and then select criteria that fit your interests.
