Las Cruces Issuing Parks And Recreation I.D. Card

Mar 5, 2013

  The City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department is now issuing 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.

The card will help streamline the administration of Parks & Recreation programs and assist in getting children placed on teams and receive information on upcoming events.

“To assist us with providing you services, it is our goal to have every child that participates in a program sponsored by the City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department to have an activities identification card,” said Parks & Recreation Department Director Mark Johnston.

For a child to obtain a card, the child, along with parents or guardians, 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. and 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

For more information call the Parks & Recreation Department at 575/541-2563. The TTY number is 575/541-2772.
