Fees: In-District versus Out-Of-District

Sandwich Park District residency is determined as residing with the Sandwich Park District taxing boundaries. The Sandwich Park District was established in 1966 to include only the City Limits of Sandwich. Anyone living outside these boundaries such as Lake Holiday, Wildwood, Hidden Oaks and rural route addresses are termed out-of-district and will pay a slightly higher fee for programs.

Park District residency is based on the address where the participant lives and not their business address of other family members living in-district. If taxes are paid to the Sandwich Park District on the home in which you reside, you are a Sandwich Park District resident and are entitled to a resident fee.

A non-resident card is available for purchase to those living outside the Sandwich Park District taxing boundaries and offers your family “in-district” rates for one year from date of purchase. Non-resident cards may be purchased at the David A. Francis Center in Knights Park.

Family Discount / Sports / Leagues

The third child (or more) in your household receives a 50% off regular price for “selected” sports leagues. Children must be all registered for the same activity.


If the Sandwich Park District feels the need to cancel a program, a full refund will be given. All refunds for registrations made with a check or cash will be mailed following the monthly Board of Commissioners meeting on the first Thursday of each month. All other trips and programs require 48 hours notice in order to receive a refund. NO refund will be given on trips that include any type of reserved or pre-purchased ticket. It is the participant’s responsibility to find someone to take their place should they find the need to cancel.
