Leisure Cards


The Columbus Recreation and Parks Department uses a photo ID card system, known as "Leisure Cards," to register participants for admission to our swimming pools and community recreation centers. In order to take advantage of the great programs and facilities we offer around Columbus you must obtain a Leisure Card. We require Leisure Cards for any individual over the age of six. (Children five and under are free with the company of a parent or guardian.) Leisure Cards only cost $1 (new or renewed), and are good for three years from the date of purchase. That's right, all you need is an accepted form of ID (details below) and one dollar! Additionally, it is worth noting that creating a new online registration account prior to applying for a new Leisure Card is not necessary, but can help expedite the process. 


Accepted Forms of Identification

Under 18

  • Driver's License (U.S or Canada)
  • School Photo ID
  • Social Security Card
  • Birth Certificate

18 & Over

  • Driver's License (U.S or Canada)
