Definition of FamilyFor the purpose of purchasing family pool passes, or receiving a family discount for the Tae Kwon Do program, a family is defined as all immediate family members residing at the same street address. This would include children of divorced parents who have joint custody, stepchildren, and foster children. Babysitters, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and ex-spouses are not considered immediate family members unless they appear on the same federal income tax return.

Photo & Video ReleaseOn occasion, our staff may photograph or videotape participants at the Parks and Recreation program activities or events. These photographs are for department use only and may be duplicated in city publications, fliers, brochures, or video production. (It is your responsibility to notify us if your child is not to be published.)

Refund PolicyIf a participant cancels from an activity prior to the first gathering, a refund is given (less expenses incurred). Following the first day of an activity, refunds/credit are not given unless: (a) the activity is cancelled by the department, in which a full refund/credit will be issued; or (b) if a medical problem arises during an activity, a physician’s written medical excuse must be presented stating that participation be discontinued. A pro-rated refund will be issued based upon the number of classes attended.

Resident/Non-Resident PolicyA resident is any person who lives within the city limits of Norwalk. This is not to be confused with the school district. City and School District boundaries are not the same. Even though your mailing address is Norwalk, this does not necessarily mean you are a city resident. See the map for boundaries. Most programs/classes have different fees for residents and nonresidents.City of Norwalk residents make a significant contribution to the financing and operation of the Norwalk Parks and Recreation Department through city property taxes. These taxes are paid whether or not individuals participate in programs or use facilities. To ensure equality, non-residents (those living outside the Norwalk city limits) will be charged a non-resident fee in addition to the program or facility fee.

Times will vary depending on location due to school activities. We also offer our Little Dragon program designed for children ages 5 to 7. Little Dragons meet twice a week. This program is run concurrently with the beginning class. All programs consist of hand and foot techniques, forms, self-defense, and lessons and instructions on topics such as respect, self-discipline, and perseverance.
