ENJOY Arlington Registration Opens May 17 With New Features

Published on May 05, 2022


Ahead of ENJOY Arlington Summer Class registration, Arlington County’s Department of Parks and Recreation is announcing new features to the registration process. The improved format will reduce wait times and help with system stability and equity. 

Beginning on Tues., May 17, 2022, registration for ENJOY Arlington’s recreation classes and nature and history programs will open to Arlington County residents on a rolling basis, staggering enrollments by class type.

  • Tues., May 17 – Nature, History and General classes
  • Wed., May 18 – Aquatics  
  • Thurs., May 19 – Gymnastics

Registration on those three days will begin at 12:00 p.m. and will be simultaneously available both online and by phone.

View the ENJOY Arlington Summer 2022 catalog and register for classes online, or call 703-228-4747 (voice) or 711 (TTY) when registration opens.

Walk-in registration will begin on Fri., May 20, at 12:00 p.m., available at Lubber Run Community Center (300 N. Park Drive). Registration for non-Arlington residents will open on Wed., May 25, at 12 p.m.  

Virtual Waiting Room 

New for this registration is an online virtual waiting room to help manage the high-volume of customers and to ensure it does not exceed the website’s ability to provide a responsive system experience.

On registration day, login to the site as usual – all users logged in will automatically enter a virtual waiting room where they will receive a spot in line. You will keep your place in the waiting room line even if your phone goes to sleep, you lose your internet connection or you close the virtual waiting room page, provided you log back in on the same device using the same browser. 

Once it’s your turn to register, you will be redirected to the registration site where you can browse the site and complete your transactions at your own speed. 

Tips for Successfully Registering 

Single Household Login 

Your Household account can only have one active session at a time. Multiple Household account “logins” (i.e. logging in via multiple devices) will slow the system and cause items to drop from your cart if attempting to register at the same time. 

Additionally, some devices work better than others (i.e. desktop with wired internet is better than phone on Wi-Fi).

Login Early 

If possible, login before the 12:00 p.m. registration time. If you arrive early, you will receive a random spot in the virtual waiting room line when the registration event begins. If you arrive at the site after registration begins, you will receive the next available spot in line.
