Online access to all of our services

The City of Columbia Parks and Recreation Department offers an Online Reservation System to reserve a park shelter, sign up for an activity, or rent a community center. By creating an account, which is a one-time process, you gain immediate access to all available recreation programming, activities, rentals, and reservations. All payments and interactions are handled online and we are happy to assist your transition to this system.
