Parks & Recreation


   Bristol Parks and Recreation has just made it easier for you to register and pay for all of our fitness offerings! You are now able to find classes and schedules online, book them, and pay using your debit or credit card (credit/debit cards are also accepted at the front desk).

   If you currently have class cards, please see us at the front desk for your new key fob which will enable speedy check in. Our new system allows for the option to receive email alerts when your class card needs to be renewed, when a class is cancelled, or if a class you're enrolled in has an instructor change.
