NEW! Tips for Registering on Opening Day

REVIEW YOUR ACCOUNT:

First things, first…make sure your BPRD account profiles and payment methods are up to date and ready to go:

  1. Click on the “Register” link on the BPRD website or go directly to: https://register.bendparksandrec.org
  2. Enter your username and password. You already have an account if you have previously participated in a program or have a pass at Juniper Swim & Fitness Center, The Pavilion or Larkspur Community Center/Bend Senior Center. The default username is your email address and the default password is your last name (first letter capitalized) unless you set it up differently.
  3. Go to “My Account” followed by “Update: Household & Member” and make sure all family members are in your account with correct birth dates and genders. If needed, add a new household member or new person for child pickup by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the page.

Once you’ve ensured your account is up to date, it’s go time.

SET UP FOR SUCCESS:

 A few important recommendations:

  1. Create a list of your priority activities and programs. More on that below.
  2. Registration works best on a desktop computer or laptop. While you can use a mobile device, it’s not the most efficient and some mobile devices with older apps or operating systems can have conflicts.
  3. Keep only one web browser window with only one tab open during registration. That one window and tab should be on the registration page. Close all other windows and tabs when it’s time to register.
  4. Be patient. If during registration your screen slows down dramatically or you see the spinning circle, it means the system is processing your request. Do not refresh your screen nor open another window, tab or computer – you will disrupt that process and likely lose your transaction.

Tips for an efficient and successful registration:

Have program Activity numbers (first 6 digits) ready when registration begins. Most of the Activity numbers are published in the online Playbook and are all available in the online program preview.

BEFORE OPENING DAY:

  1. View the programs on the online Playbook or linked to the registration website homepage and make a note of the Activity numbers for the programs you want. One exception in Playbook is Youth Swim Lessons – click the link in the online Playbook to view the offerings and Activity numbers.
    • Whether your list is on paper or digital, keep that list handy for registration opening day.
    • If you choose to add the programs you want to your “Wishlist” in your account, take a screenshot of all the items and their Activity numbers. This screenshot can act as your list.
    • Note programs that are a priority to you and your household.

ON OPENING DAY:

1.  Log into your account.

2. Starting with your priority programs, type the Activity number in the search bar and click search.

3. Click the + icon on the left to select the Activity.

4. Note the green bar at the bottom of the screen and click “Add To Cart.”

5. Confirm details/waivers/etc. for each of the participants.

6. If you have other priority programs you’d like to enroll in, click on the “Continue Shopping” button. Repeat above steps from entering in Activity number to adding the program into your cart. You can have multiple programs in your cart.

7. Once your priority activity or activities are in your cart, check out promptly to you get into the programs you want and your session isn’t accidentally timed out due to inactivity. Important: your transaction must be completed before your enrollment is confirmed.

8. Look for your confirmation email.

9. After you’ve registered for your priority programs, now is the time to go back and shop for the programs that weren’t your top priority, repeating the above steps.
