Improper Registration

Those who register for Park District programs and improperly use a Deerfield address are removed from the class and no refund or transfer fee is provided. Non-residents pay a higher fee per program. Note: Non-residents are not eligible for resident fees even if their caretaker/ provider/relative resides in Deerfield.

Proof of Deerfield Park District Residency Status

In order to receive "Resident" rates, you are required to show proof of residence. Once your household has done this you do not need to repeat the process. This procedure has been re-instituted to ensure district residents receive priority in enrolling for high demand activities.

Proof of Residency includes BOTH:

1) A current residential utility bill (gas, electric, water - no phone bills accepted) with your name and your mailing address; AND

2) A valid driver's license or other photo identification containing your current address.

Documentation may be brought to the registration office at Jewett Park Community Center during normal business hours.
