Manhattan Park District relies on the postal service for the distribution of our program brochures, and assumes no responsibility for delivery. Brochures can be obtained at the Recreation Center or on our website at

Drop-Off Policy

We love our parents, but...with your child's best interest in mind; we ask that parents and siblings do not remain in the building when dropping your child off for class, unless otherwise noted. This can be a distraction and interfere with the quality and productivity of the class. Also, we know that children benefit from having recreational time with their peers and can gain a sense of independence when spending time apart from their families while partaking in a structured activity. Our instructors welcome any questions about your child's progress at any time after class. Thank you for your cooperation.

Disruptive Behavior

Manhattan Park District reserves the right to terminate participation in an activity or program due to disruptive behavior or conduct, as determined by the Manhattan Park District.
