DCRC Annual Membership Rates

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 at https://dublinohiousa.gov/taxation.

CR = City Resident  | SDR = School District Resident | NR = Non-Resident

City of Dublin Parks & Recreation Financial Assistance Program

The City of Dublin Parks and Recreation Department offers a variety of programs for all ages.  The City strives to make these programs accessible to all its residents.  Therefore, a financial assistance program is available for those who would not otherwise be able to afford to participate in these programs.

DCRC Fitness Passes

Using a Pass for In-Person Land Group Fitness Classes

The unlimited monthly option offers access to any land or water group fitness classes. The minimum age requirement to participate in group fitness classes is 12. Participants under age 18 must have a parent/guardian enroll them and agree to the waiver each time a new pass is purchased.

Class capacities are determined by the equipment used, available space and patron safety. You may check in for a class 15 minutes beforehand but no later than 10 minutes after the class starts. Classes are subject to reaching the participant limit prior to scheduled class time.

Class slots are on a first-come, first-served basis. Class capacities are determined by appropriate physical distancing, equipment used, available space and patron safety.

Courtesy & Rules

Hours of operation
Our parks are open for your enjoyment from dawn to dusk, unless otherwise noted at the park or during certain special events.

Keep it Clean
We’re sure you’ll find Dublin’s parks and bikeways to be clean, beautiful places to enjoy with your family. The City strives to keep its parks, playgrounds and bikeways clean and free of litter. Please leave the parks as clean as you find them so that others will enjoy them as much as you do. Disposal of litter in public places is prohibited unless placed in public trash containers or using City-authorized containers as part of the City’s refuse, recycling and yard waste collection programs.

We know your furry friends enjoy nature as much as you do. We ask you to be safe and courteous with your pets.

Animals may not run at-large in our parks. All animals must be under the owner’s control at all times. All pets must be securely leashed, kept in a vehicle or suitably caged.

Animal owners also must pick up and properly dispose of any fecal matter left by their pets. It’s not just courteous — it’s the law!

Horses are allowed in designated areas of Glacier Woods Metro Park.

Hunting and fishing
For the safety of our residents, hunting is forbidden in the City. Fishing is permitted in designated areas, including certain City park ponds and in the Scioto River (with a license). Please fish only in ponds where signs prohibiting fishing are not posted.

Respect our parks
Plants and animals also are part of the Dublin community. Please respect the plant and animal life and ecosystems of our natural areas. Enjoy the flowers, trees and other flora without picking or damaging plants. Touching or disturbing wildlife, including animal and bird nesting areas and eggs can be dangerous to humans — not to mention our flora and fauna! And please do not damage or remove any property or natural feature, including stones and minerals, earth, wood, and nuts. Take only pictures and leave only footprints in our parks.
