Activity & Program Information and Online Registration thru RecDesk


*Super Summer Playground Camp and Sport Camps Notice*     Please register your child(ren) in camp at least one week prior to start date.

We are required to meet a standard of camp staff to camp participant ratio.  Our Super Summer Playground Camp has a maximum of 50. Our Sport Camps carry varied maximum limits.   We STRONGLY encourage on-line registration at least one week prior to the start of the camp.   This summer we had to turn people away, as we reached our maximum camp limits. Don't let this happen to you! For Summer Playground Camp drop-in availability, call (302) 674-7541 to see if we have open slots for the day.

Online registration is best!  Don’t delay - register today!


Taking care of our city Parks!

You may notice some activity in your local park.  City crews have been hard at work performing tasks such as old fence removal, tree trimming, increasing benches along pathways and much more.  We love hearing your feedback and hope that you are able to enjoy the hard work and dedication our staff has in keeping our parks beautiful for all to enjoy.  If you see a park area that needs our attention, please give us a call at (302) 674-7541 or shoot us an email at parks@dover.de.us.
