  • Where are you located?

Answer: 52401 Ashley St, New Baltimore, MI 48047, also known as the Anchor Bay Aquatic Center.


  • How can I obtain a program guide of everything offered?

Answer: This website will allow you to view all of the current programs that you're allowed to register for, but if you'd like to view a hard copy of the current parks and recreation brochure you can click on the "CURRENT BROCHURE" tab on the left side of your screen. Printed copies of the program brochure are available at the Recreation Center, while supplies last.

  • How can I register for a program?

Answer: This website will allow you to register for many of our current and upcoming programs. However, there are some classes and events that do not allow online registration. If there is not a "Register Now" button next to the class that you're viewing, you must come into the New Baltimore Recreation Center to register.

  • How do I know if I will be charged as a resident or non-resident for a program or rental?

Answer: Resident definition is anyone living within the city boundaries of New Baltimore, MI. Residents support New Baltimore Parks & Recreation facilities and programs through property taxes which allow taxpayers priority registration. Non-resident program fees are listed with the program fee information. When registering for a program, each resident (2 years and older) is required to prove residency.

Proof of residency for adults can be a driver's license, state I.D., copy of a tax return or residence utility bill. For minors, proof may be a copy of a birth certificate, library card, or health insurance card. Parent/Guardian I.D. may also be required to prove residency of minors.

 *Even though you may have a New Baltimore address or postal code (48047), you may not be considered a New Baltimore resident. Why? It is because the Chesterfield Township boundaries have created a separation of addresses. The quickest way to determine if you are a New Baltimore resident is by checking your residence tax bill. The city that you pay taxes toward, is the city or township that you have official residence in.

  • Do you take credit cards?

Answer: Yes, we do take credit or debit both cards online and at the Recreation Center. However, there will be a convenience fee if you choose to use a credit or debit card. Either a $1.95 or 2.5% (charges over $70) will be processed at the time of transaction. Cards Accepted: Visa, Mastercard, American Express

  • Can non-residents register for New Baltimore Parks & Recreation programs, classes, or events?

Answer: Yes, we welcome residents from all communities to take part in any activity that we have scheduled. However, there may be a non-resident fee associated with the cost of the activity.

  • When is the last day that I can register for a program?

Answer: When viewing our courses either online or in our program guide you will notice a registration deadline date. Don't wait until it is too late to register for an activity that you or a family member is interested in. We never like to cancel activities because we don't have enough people registered.

  • Why can't I rent a pavilion or facility online?

Answer: In order to have contact with the renters of our facilites, our department has chosen to require interested parties to complete the rental process at the New Baltimore Recreation Center.
