As of Tuesday, October 23, members can streamline the process of card activation by going online and creating their account.  Accounts can be created for the entire family during this process; however, registration or online sign-up for participation in a recreation program will not be available until after November 1.  The key cards will be available for pick up at the Garnett Recreation Center on November 1.  City staff encourage you to visit: Garnett Recreation Rec Desk to create your account.  For instructions on how this process will work, please view the online video: Use Rec Desk

  New Members:  Individuals wanting to join the Garnett Recreation Center to participate in the 24-hour membership access can also create their account online or visit the Rec Center on or after November 1.  A special registration station will be available in the Rec Center Office so that staff can help patrons with the online account process if needed.
