Membership FAQs  

Does my Salt Lake County pass work at this Facility?

Short answer is no we are not a County Facility. We are a Special District run by a Board of Trustees that represent different Districts in our tax base. 

What do I need to bring to set up my Membership?

If you are a resident in our Service Area Boundries, you will need to bring one of the following:

  • Current Utility Bill
  • Mortgage or Rental Agreement
  • Bank or Insurance Statement
    • Drivers Licenses are NOT excepted as proof of residency. Licenses are not updated as often as needed to be used as current proof.

I live in Cottonwood Heights, why am I not in your boundries?

On July 26, 1967, the community, along with the Salt Lake County Board of Commissioners created the Salt Lake County Service Area No. 2. It was created to provide enhanced park and recreational services for the citizens in the community through the collection of property taxes and was defined by a geographical boundary. 
Cottonwood Heights City was not established until 2005 and the City boundries are larger than ours. If you are still unsure if you are paying taxes to us look for  this on your property tax notice. 

  • Cottonwood Heights Parks


  • Cottonwood Heights City
  • Cottonwood Heights Improvement District

Can I purchase a Membership for just 1 Month?

We do NOT offer a 1 Month Membership. We DO offer Monthly payments on an Annual Membership.

Why is the Monthly Membership more expensive than just paying for an Annual?

Banks charge us extra fees to charge your account or credit monthly, which contributes to the increase.

What am I required to pay when setting up my Monthly Membership?

We require the First & Last Month payment as well as the pro rated fee on initail sign up day. The pro rated fee is caculated on whether you select the payments to come out on the 5th or 20th of each month.

At what age can I use the Cardio & Fitness Equipment?

You must be 14 years old or older per our insurance policy. No exceptions!

Can I add a Nanny or Grandparent to my membership?

Only if they are claimed as a depended per IRS, if you do we need to see proof of this. Otherwise they would need to purchase their own membership. If you live in the boundries we need to see proof that they live in your home, proof being a cell phone bill, bank statement ext.

Membership Card Policy

It is our policy that ALL members show current membership cards every time they use the facility. This is not meant to cause an inconvenience but a protection for our members. With approximately 10,000 members, it is very difficult to remember each membership expiration date. We appreciate your cooperation.


An elected Board of Trustees governs the Cottonwood Heights Parks and Recreation Service Area. This Board is comprised of three members who are residents of the community. They are responsible for budget, taxes, goals, policies and procedures and generally meet in a public session on the third Wednesday of each month in the Board Room. To have items of interest placed on the agenda, contact Lyse' Durrant at 801.943.3190 ext.102 for details and time.

Renewal Rates

These will be the same as the current rates but will reflect a 5% discount if renewed on or before your membership expiration date. Membership ID cards are provided with each new membership. Replacement cards are available for $5.00 each.

Membership Upgrades

There must be at least 6 months remaining on your membership in order to upgrade to another level. Example: Basic to Premium, Premium to Ultimate, Single to Couple or Single to Family.

Why do Residents Receive a Discount?

On June 22, 1967, citizens within the Cottonwood Heights area voted to pay additional property taxes in order to build a community recreation facility. To this day, the Cottonwood Heights Parks and Recreation Service Area is supported partially through the funds collected for this purpose. Residents living within the designated Service Area boundaries are entitled to a membership discount because of paying additional property taxes for these parks and recreation services. An elected Board of Trustees regulates and distributes the funds.
