Leisure Cards

Columbus Recreation and Parks Department uses an ID card system, known as “Leisure Cards,” to safely identify participants during admission to our swimming pools and community centers. In order to take advantage of the great programs and facilities we offer around Columbus, you must obtain a Leisure Card.

  • Leisure Cards are now FREE!
  • They are required for any individual over the age of six.
  • They expire after three years.
    • Please update your account information when you renew.
  • They are available at your local community center or online. If you apply online, you will need to pick up your card at your community center. To apply online:
    • Create an ActiveNET account, or log in to ActiveNet
    • Click on the Memberships tab
    • Scroll down to “Columbus Recreation and Parks Leisure Card” and click on “Enroll now”
    • Complete the information and click “Submit”
    • Pick up your card at any community center

All our community centers have the capability to print leisure cards with exception of the 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.
