RESIDENT ID REQUIRED
The FREE Resident ID Card is required for children under age 16 for daily admission. To ensure residency privileges are not abused, all patrons paying for a daily visit to the Water Park or Recreation Center must prove their residency within the Tinley Park-Park District boundaries to receive the discounted resident rate. Children show this card at the Water Park gate or Recreation Center front desk and pay the resident daily fee. Report cards and school IDs do not prove residency.

A parent must accompany their child(ren) age 15 and younger to the Recreation Center front desk to obtain the Resident ID Card.
