May 14, 2021, Operations Update:
On May 12, Governor Mike DeWine announced that most public health orders will be lifted June 2. The City of Dublin will continue to follow public health orders as we exit the limitations the COVID-19 pandemic has placed on us.
Recreation Services staff is currently evaluating logistical requirements to reopen as well as determining available staffing required to return operations to as close to normal as possible. As plans come into focus over the next three weeks, we will communicate those changes through all of our communication platforms. Thank you for your patience during this time.

City Resident, School District Resident, Non-Resident Fees Explained
Dublin City Council recognizes that the facilities and programs offered by Recreation Services should provide beneficial pricing and priority to the residents of the City. City Council’s current financial policy is to keep fees for residents participating in recreation classes and other recreational amenities at a moderate level. These financial policies have been implemented to benefit residents and to encourage a healthy community. School District Residents and Non-Residents do not receive the tax-subsidized pricing received by the residents of the City of Dublin.
Fees for recreation center annual passes, seasonal passes and program registrations are determined by where people live. You are considered a City Resident if you reside within the City of Dublin corporate limits. School District Residents reside in the Dublin School District, but not within the City of Dublin corporate limits. Anyone not fitting into one of these two categories is considered a Non-Resident. Your mailing address or school district is not always an accurate indication of your City of Dublin residency status. You may research your residency status on the State of Ohio’s website at http://tax.ohio.gov/divisions/employer_withholding/index.stm under “The Finder.”
