The Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Division requires minimum levels of enrollment to be met in order to run programs or classes. For this reason registration prior to registration deadlines is extremely important. If a class or program is canceled due to lack of enrollment, you will be notified and offered a full refund or credit (your choice). Credits must be used for a Sandpoint Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces activity or program and expire after one (1) year's time.


No refunds will be given after the beginning of a program. Refunds requested by participant prior to the start of the program will be refunded less a $10 charge. Facility reservations are non refundable unless specifically noted otherwise. Contact Parks and Rec by phone at 208-263-3613 or by email at to request a refund prior to the beginning of the activity or class.
