Programs
Our programs are open to all Town of Bedford Residents. Only those registered in the class will be permitted to attend.  Non-Residents may register, if available to non-residents and space permitting, for most programs one week after registration begins and pay an additional 25% of the fee per program. We accept a limited number of school district non-resident children in our day camp programs. In addition, there are a limited number of non-resident family pool memberships available. Please call our office for more information.

Registration
Registration for all programs may be done in the Recreation Office or by mail with a check (made payable to “Town of Bedford”) and cannot be accepted by phone. Credit card transactions may be  done in the office or online by signing into your Recreation account at https://www.bedfordny.gov/departments/recreation-parks/. Please note: there may be a processing fee associated with credit card transactions. We cannot be responsible for lost or misdirected mail.

Senior Citizen Discount
Town of Bedford residents who are 65 years of age or older; are eligible for a 50% discount on most programs.

Field and Facility Permits
Permits for group use of Town owned fields and facilities are re­quired for group and family functions. Individuals wishing to reserve a facility must be a Town Resident. Facility Use Applica­tions are available on the Town’s web site on the Forms and Applications page or contact the Recreation office at 666-7004.  All applications should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the scheduled activity.

Picnic Packs
For residents planning summer picnics, the Bedford Recreation & Parks Department offers free use of a “picnic pack” of outdoor game equipment such as playground balls, jump ropes, Frisbees, wiffle balls, bats, etc. Those interested should contact the office at least one week prior to their planned picnic. A $25 refundable de­posit is required (refunded upon the return of the “picnic pack”).

Insurance
The Town of Bedford carries standard liability coverage. This cov­erage does not include medical costs for anyone injured in the normal course of participation in any Town program. All individu­als enrolled in Town of Bedford Recreation & Parks programs do so at their own risk.
