    Burlington Recreation and Parks is now partnering with CivicRec to offer a cloud-based recreation management tool to allow citizens greater visibility of activities, classes, programs, sports leagues, and more that are offered by the department with more convenient online registration and payment options. 

    In addition, citizens can search for and reserve facilities, such as buildings, pavilions, shelters, and meeting rooms all conveniently online – from any connected smartphone, tablet, computer or laptop.

    Program registrations and facility rentals through CivicRec are live now! Users are encouraged to set up an account and browse the current programs, activities, and rental offerings. Please note many programs and facility rentals are limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

    Everyone will be a new user in CivcRec, even if a user had an account on ActiveNet, the previous online registration platform. All new users will need to create an account in CivicRec to register for activities or rent facilities. 

    If previous ActiveNet users need to access their account information or print receipts for tax purposes, the site will be available here through February 28. After that date, ActiveNet will no longer be available and user accounts will be deleted.
