Each participant in any open gym program is given a wristband that must be worn during the entire open gym time. Wristbands show proof of check-in and payment and help Park District staff control the number of participants in the gym. Anyone not wearing a wristband will be asked to leave the gym. Re-entry will be allowed only if spots are available and payment is made.
