Looking to join an exercise class or register your child for day camp? Recreation center patrons must register for programs online using ActiveNet. The new online registration service eliminates the need to stand in lines at recreation centers on registration days by providing a new, convenient option to participants. With the change, those interested in participating in Irving’s recreational programs can conveniently sign up for programs from any Internet-enabled computer.

  • IPAR membership is valid for one year.
  • IPAR membership is required to participate in any Irving Parks and Recreation program.
  • Membership fees:
    • Recreation Centers
      • Ages birth to 11: Free
      • Ages 12 and older: $5 (resident), $30 (nonresident)
      • Corporate ID Card: $25 nonresident that works in Irving (must show proof)
