Montgomery Parks, in collaboration with Montgomery County Recreation has launched a new registration system, ActiveMONTGOMERY.org. The new system replaces ParkPASS and RecWeb, the two separate registration systems currently used by Montgomery Parks and Montgomery County Recreation, respectively.
ActiveMontgomery provides one location, with just one username and password, for people to register for classes from either organization. The system was launched last week on August 17.
“People expect technology to make their lives easier across all aspects of their lives from shopping to reading to listening to music to accessing directions,” said Michael F. Riley, Director of Montgomery Parks. “ActiveMontgomery brings this same experience to our park patrons enabling them a fast, easy way to sign up for programs, classes and reserve facilities.”
ActiveMONTGOMERY has new features that were not available in ParkPASS or RecWeb. The new features include; easier search functionality, mobile-friendly registration access, Google maps location services and convenient credit card registration.
“ActiveMONTGOMERY provides a broader range of registration options which will provide customers with a more comprehensive, user-friendly registration experience,” said Recreation Department Director Gabe Albornoz. “Registration is often the gateway into our programs and services, and ActiveMONTGOMERY will take registration to a more advanced level.”
To begin using ActiveMontgomery, users must set up new customer accounts at ActiveMONTGOMERY.ORG. Account set-up will take approximately five minutes and will enable people to view upcoming activities and programs planned for fall 2015.
Montgomery Parks manages more than 36,000 acres of parkland, consisting of 420 parks. Montgomery Parks is a department of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), a bi-county agency established in 1927 to steward public land. The M-NCPPC has been nationally recognized for its high quality parks and recreation services and is regarded as a national model by other parks systems.
