The Newington Parks and Recreation Department is excited to announce that online registration is here! In an effort to make the registration process more convenient, accessible and environmentally friendly, we have now made it possible to register for programs from your very own computer, cell phone, or other electronic device. All you have to do is click the link below to head to our online registration webpage. Once there, click the "Login" button on the top-right of the menus.
If you have registered for a program with us since Spring of 2016 (when we implemented our new programming software, RecTrac), then you should already have an account created. All you need to do is fill in the primary household member's email where it reads "Primary Email Address" and then plug in the primary household member's last name where it reads "Password". You will be prompted and required to change the password upon your first entry to the website.
If you have not registered for a program with us since before Spring of 2016 or if you have never registered for a Parks and Recreation program, you will need to create an account. After clicking the "Login" button, simply click the hyperlink below the "Password" field that reads "Please click here to register for a new account". Fill in the required information. If you are registering a child or other family member, please note that the first field you fill out is for the primary household member only. Your child's or other family member's information can be added by clicking the bar that reads "Additional Family Members". It is easiest to add all family members now so you don't need to worry about adding their information down the road. Please also click the bar that reads "Emergency Contacts" to fill in at least one emergency contact for your household.
Once you log in, you will be able to register yourself or an additional family member for our programs! Most programs are available through online registration. However, some of the more convoluted programs may not be available online.
This page will also enable you to check field and facility availability for rentals. A few of the fields or facilities that you can view are the Churchill pavilions (registration for these will open up in the Spring), Mortensen Community Center Gymnasium, The Lounge (formerly the Teen Center), and more! Though you cannot rent a facility online, you will be able to plan ahead by checking which days and times are available before coming in to make the official rental.
Please call us at 860-665-8666 if you have any questions concerning the programs that you are registering for or if you are having trouble logging in to or creating your account. We are available Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm. Contributing to a greener world and making it easier and more convenient for you to live, work and play in Newington is just another way we are "Building a Strong Community".
