Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, Plano Parks and Recreation has decided to postpone the start of summer registration to May 16, 2020.

This new registration date is subject to change if events change in the next few weeks. Please note, many classes, including summer camps, may have been cancelled or have modified dates. If a class or camp is open and there are no spots available, please add your name to the wait list in case we open it up at a later date. In addition, please be aware some classes and camps may still be cancelled after you sign up as we continue to evaluate our services and Covid-19 concerns.
