First Time Account Setup

Become a parksdirect customer


You must establish a parksdirect account before you can register for classes and activities. It is easy to get started, and we’ll answer any questions you may have.

What do you need to join parksdirect?


You have the option to create your family’s parksdirect account either in person at or online at www.pgparksdirect.com. Residency MUST be verified in person before the household can be eligible for discounted resident prices. All accounts created online will be considered Non-Residents (and will be charged the Non-Resident prices) until those verification documents can be presented in person.

To verify your residency or create an account in-person, simply stop by any staffed facility with proof of residency for the household, and proof of age for each member of the household. Household members must be an immediate family member or any child who is under your legal temporary or permanent custody. Documentation is required to prove custody. Acceptable verification documents for both residency and age are listed below.

Accepted proof of residency:


  • driver’s license or MVA ID card
  • utility bill
  • lease agreement
  • property settlement sheet or original letter from Disability Agency on official stationary.

Accepted proof of identity:


  • driver’s license or MVA ID card
  • passport
  • resident alien card
  • school or military ID card, or other government-issued ID.

Accepted proof of age:


  • driver’s license or MVA ID card
  • passport
  • resident/alien card
  • birth certificate with a raised seal
  • baptismal certificate with birth date and raised seal, or original letter from school or Disability Agency on official stationery.
