Family Adventure Pass

This June, when you buy an annual or month-to-month membership at any of our nine Rec Centers, you’ll be given a Family Adventure Pass. This pass is designed to give your family a taste of many of the exciting experiences the Park Authority has to offer.

The Family Adventure Pass is valid for up to eight people for a single visit and expires on Sept. 5, 2022.

The Park Authority's Rec Centers make fun and fitness easy. We're affordable: no initiation fees, no annual dues and no hidden costs. Plus our membership options give you discounts off general admission rates, making a good buy even better.
