What’s new at WPR? 

Refund Policy - Effective immediately, Widefield Parks and Recreation has implemented a new refund policy.  We recognize that participants need to withdraw or miss activity sessions due to unforeseen circumstances. Registration fees are based on a variety of costs determined by the number of staff required, supply cost, and overhead fees, based on the number of registered participants. Because many of these costs must be paid in advance, withdrawals would result in unjustifiable costs to Widefield Parks & Recreation. We appreciate your understanding.

Fee Increases - Due to the rising cost of staffing, supplies, and other expenses, Widefield Parks and Recreation will increase activity fees and drop in rates in order to maintain quality programming and opportunities for our community members.

WPR Recreation Center

Impact of Construction
During the twelve month construction period, our campus will see several impacts. Parking lots, road ways, and sidewalks will have changes and improvements. This will make the campus easier to navigate and more accessible. Unfortunately during construction, some areas will be closed off and parking will be limited. The new recreation center and campus roadway improvements will allow us to better serve the community needs in the future. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience.

We invite you to visit our WPR Recreation Center webpage for the most up to date information on the new recreation center.
