    WAUKESHA COUNTY PARK SYSTEM ANNOUNCES ONLINE SERVICES

     

    Waukesha County Park System will launch a new on-line reservation system, September 1, 2016.  In our commitment to better serve customers, the new online system will allow park patrons to check availability or reserve picnic areas and buildings; register for public programs and lessons; and purchase annual park entrance stickers from anywhere.

    “The online reservation system will give our park users the convenience and flexibility of reserving facilities and buying annual stickers from the comfort of their own homes,” noted Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow. 

    The new online services change some dates to allow users to reserve buildings and picnic areas one year (365 days) in advance starting September 1, 2016.  The following are new online services dates:

    September 1, 2016

    • Check availability
    • Reserve picnic areas and buildings
    • Register for public programs and lessons
    • Purchase 2016 annual stickers (will be mailed within one business day)

    November 25, 2016

    • Purchase 2017 annual stickers (will be mailed within two business days)

    January 1, 2017

    • Reserve a campsite

    Like many other on-line services; a system profile is needed in order to make a purchase.  For more information about the Park System’s online services, visit www.waukeshacountyparks.com  click on Online Services FAQ. 

    The Waukesha County Park System is a natural resource based park system that demonstrates stewardship while providing recreational and educational opportunities.  Follow us on twitter at @WaukeshaCoParks or like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/WaukeshaCountyParks.
