On-line Transactions

The Urbana Park District allows job applicants to apply for open job positions on-line. The Urbana Park District also allows on-line registration for our programs and purchase of merchandise and gift cards. Any information submitted online for these activities is subject to the same safeguards as if you had engaged in these activities in person rather than over the Internet.

Sending the Urbana Park District Email

We value your feedback. If you send the Urbana Park District an email with questions or comments about our programs or services, we do collect your email address and any other information that you volunteer.

The Urbana Park District requires the parent or guardian to enter registrations on behalf of minors. Since the UPD website requires an “electronic signature” on the waiver of liability agreement, only a parent or guardian may enroll a minor in an activity. We only collect such information as is necessary to conduct programs and activities.
