Membership Residency

To qualify for residency benefits, please provide the necessary documentation when purchasing memberships either in-person or through our online application. By presenting the required documentation, you can ensure a smooth process when purchasing your membership.

Documentation Requirements: Valid current driver's license, official signed lease which clearly states the lease dates and all names of all parties requesting residency, current utility bills reflecting names and address (Electric, Gas, Refuse).

Verification Process:   To verify Downers Grove residency, we rely on information from the DuPage County Assessor's Office. By checking ownership and tax allocations to the Downers Grove Park District, we can determine eligibility. If your address does not contribute taxes to the Downers Grove Park District, you will be offered a non-resident membership.

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 notice of cancellation has been made to 4500 Fitness. Please contact our Fitness Registration staff at FitDesk@dgparks.org for complete details on membership types. Prices are subject to change. We reserve the right to cancel or change membership options.
