Proof of residency is required to receive City of Dublin Resident rate. All guests are required to present a state, school, or City of Dublin picture ID prior to passing through the Check-In Desk.
Guests 10-17 years old may request to have an ID issued at the Welcome Desk when accompanied by a guardian with proper identification. Please note that students must present their student ID or a valid Ohio driver’s license for entry to the Dublin Community Recreation Center (DCRC). Students can take a photo of their ID and store it on their phone if they do not want to bring their ID with them to the recreation center. Anyone not presenting a photo ID will not be granted entry into the DCRC.
If you have never been a member or taken a DCRC class, you may create an account online. For verification purposes, proof of address and a photo ID is required. To create an online account, simply upload an image of your license and utility bill. Or you may stop into the DCRC during operating hours with a current utility bill and a valid Ohio driver’s license to create an account.
Purchase or renew your Annual Membership online or at the DCRC Welcome Desk. Here are some guidelines:
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
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.
LAND AND WATER GROUP FITNESS PASSES
NEW in 2022 | Effective January 1, all 10-class and 20-class group fitness passes allow access to either water or land 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.
In addition to our drop-in classes, we will continue to offer a Virtual Fitness Pass. We understand that some patrons remain unable to participate in classes on-site and prefer our virtual options. This pass will allow monthly access to an unlimited amount of virtual and live-streamed classes taught by your favorite DCRC instructors. Access to classes begins on the first day of the month and ends on the last day.
You will need to have an account set up in order to purchase the pass. If you are a DCRC patron, have previously purchased group fitness passes, or have registered for activities before, then you already have an account. If you have trouble accessing your account, please call 614.410.4550 or email us at email@example.com. Our team is ready to help walk you through the sign-up process should you need assistance.
All passes are non-refundable and are separate from our Land and Spinning® group fitness passes. Each virtual class is limited to the first 99 participants.
Passes are sold in five different packages.

A unique feature of the DCRC is the leisure pool, which includes a lazy river, clam slide for children, double helix slide for those a little more daring and a zero-foot entry point for cautious tots. The warmer water and 3.5-foot maximum depth make this pool perfect for children, adults and senior adults.

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 Ridge 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.
