Bureau County Metro Center Membership and Fees


Many non-park district residents or non-members use local recreation services but make no tax or membership contribution to help support the operations. Therefore, it is not equitable for these participants to enjoy the parks, facilities, or services that residents and members are either taxed on or pay a membership fee to maintain and operate. Thus higher registration fees are necessary to supplement and help maintain the parks and facilities as well as provide for staffing.

  • Registration Fee- All direct and indirect costs of a program.
  • Resident- Anyone within the geographic boundaries of the Princeton Park District.
  • Non-Resident- Anyone living outside of the Princeton Park District taxing district.
  • Member- Anyone that has a valid membership with the BCMC.

In our publications you will see that most of our programs and classes will list three prices. The first being BCMC member fee, the second being the non-member resident fee and the third being the non-member non-resident fee.

Residency within the Princeton Park District boundaries can be established by providing the following information at registration:

  • A form of picture I.D. (drivers license, school I.D., etc.)
  • A current tax or utility bill showing your name and address or a valid voter registration card.

Membership Options

Annual and 6 month memberships can be purchased in the folowing categories:

  • FAMILY - All members of an immediate family who are dependents and living in the same household
  • ONE-PARENT FAMILY - Same as family with only one parent on the membership
  • COUPLE or LEGALLY RECOGNIZED CIVIL UNION- Must be married, no children included
  • ADULT - Age 18 years and up
