New Online Reservation System for Parks and Recreation
By Theresa Gang
Released/Published: Feb 11, 2015

For the past several months, the staff of Canton Parks and Recreation have been working diligently to offer a new service to all customers. As promised by the Canton Park Commission and the Canton Joint Recreation District as part of their ongoing efforts to merge their departments, a new online reservation system is now available.

This new system, hosted by Active.net, is aimed at offering the same park shelters and recreation programs to our customers from the comfort of their own home. In the past, park and recreation patrons would need to go to different locations and multiple trips to complete these transactions.

While not all services will be immediately available online, the majority of these offerings can now be reserved and purchased with a click of a button by visiting www.cantonohio.gov/parksandrecreation Canton Parks and Recreation are pleased to offer this one stop shop opportunity to improve the overall experience for their customers.

In addition, park shelters will now be available without a deposit which makes the transaction even more convenient for the customer. As a result, the following rate schedule will be in effect for 2015 with full payment required at the time the reservation is made. Outdoor shelters are $40.00 for residents and $50.00 for non residents. Outdoor shelters with kitchenettes are $50.00 for residents and $60.00 for non residents. The indoor shelter, Garaux on Raff Road, will be $150.00 for residents and $200.00 for non residents. We continue to make park improvements including keyless entry and access to electric.

To streamline this process, we hope that you will visit our website and create an account. This one time registration will make future transactions even easier and will help keep our customers informed of new programs and development projects within the parks.

All customers who create an account on line by March 1, 2015 will be entered in a drawing to win one of three prizes for 2015:
1 - Free week of day camp OR a $50.00 program credit.
2 - Free shelter rental and picnic kit.
3 - Free Parks and Recreation sweatshirt and hat.
