Recreation and Parks Department uses a photo ID card system, known as
"Leisure Cards," to safely identify participants during 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.
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
- Leisure card application form completed by parent or guardian
- Account created online by parent or guardian
18 & Over
- Driver's License (U.S or Canada)
- School Photo ID
- Current Employee Photo ID

All our community centers have the capability to print leisure cards with exception of Martin Janis, Cultural Arts Center and the Franklin Park Adventure Center. Centers vary in the days and hours that they produce Leisure Cards. Please contact your center for their specific hours. Find your center.
Leisure Card Replacement and Renewal
Leisure Card replacement is $1 (Anyone that had a card, but needs a new one.)
Membership renewal is $1 (Anyone with an expired card.)
