Several Chatham County Parks & Recreation Fees Increasing July 1
The new Chatham County budget starting July 1 includes fee increases for several recreation program and park facility rentals. The increases will bring fees more in line with surrounding communities and help recoup actual department costs, said Tracy Burnett, director of Chatham County Parks & Recreation.
As of July 1, the new fees are:
- Youth basketball: Registrant fee is $40 for county residents and $45 for non-residents
- Youth softball: Registrant fee is $35 for county residents and $45 for non-residents
- Park shelter rental: $30 for a three-hour rental of a shelter
- Park field rental: $20 for a three-hour reservation of a field with no lights provided; if lighting is needed, the fee is $35 for a three-hour reservation.
