The City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department will now issue individual activity identification cards for all youth who participate in Parks & Recreation programs. The card will contain a photo, I.D. number, birth month and year, grade level as of school year 2012-2013 and issue/expiration dates. The initial card will be free of charge.
This card will help streamline the administration of Parks & Recreation programs and assist in getting children placed on teams and receive information on upcoming events.
For a child to obtain a card, parents or guardians, along with the child, must appear in person at Meerscheidt Recreation Center, 1600 E. Hadley Ave., to fill out the permission form, provide proof of child's age and grade level, and to have the child's photo taken.
Cards will be issued Monday thru Friday between 9 a.m. - 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. For more information call the Parks & Recreation Department at (575)541-2550.
