Although it’s cold outside, Cranberry’s Parks & Recreation Department is ready for the warm weather.
Signups for the township's spring and summer recreation programs start Jan. 28
A huge selection of activities, instructional programs, class sessions and events are available for those of every age and interest, according to the township.
The programs, many of which are low cost or free of charge, are detailed in the new 56-page Parks & Recreation 2013 spring/summer guide. The pamphlet was mailed to homes in Cranberry and surrounding communities the week of Jan. 16.
The program guide is also available on the township website at www.cranberrytownship.org/programs.
Online and in-person registration for the programs, some of which start as early as the first week in February, begins at 8:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 28. Phone and mail registration opens at noon that same day.
Registration will remain open every normal business day throughout the summer, although some of the more popular program offerings and dates are expected to fill up quickly, the township warns.
For Cranberry residents with a Resident Identification Card, the fee for many programs is reduced by about 10 to 20 percent. The identification card is available free of charge with proof of residency from either the Parks & Recreation Department’s information desk, located inside the Cranberry Municipal Center, or the Cranberry Highlands Pro Shop.
First-time online registrants will need to apply for access to use the system, which is also included as part of the Resident Discount Card application process.
New registrants also may apply online to have a new account opened and be assigned an initial PIN number. Only one account application per household is needed, regardless of family size.
