Membership Residency

We verify residency! Please bring your documentation when purchasing memberships in-person. If you are completing the online application, you may be asked to supply documentation.

For those claiming Downers Grove residency, we verify ownership and tax allocations to the Downers Grove Park District through the DuPage County Assessor's Office. If the address does not pay taxes to the Downers Grove Park District, a non-resident membership will be sold. If we cannot verify ownership of the property, you will be required to provide us with supporting documentation of your residency. Acceptable forms of documentation are, official signed lease agreements stating lease dates and names, utility bills such as Com Ed, Refuse, Electric, etc, or a current Driver's License reflecting the address.

Payment Plan Option

If you choose the convenient payment plan option, the first month payment will be prorated from the date of sign-up to the date of the first monthly billing and will be due at the time of purchase. Payment plans are required to have an automatic withdrawal from a checking, savings or credit card to qualify. Memberships will remain active until a 30-day written notice of cancellation has been made to the Downers Grove Park District. Please contact the registration desk for complete details on membership types. Prices are subject to change. We reserve the right to cancel or change membership options.
