Centennial Ice Rinks Season Pass 2008-2009:
Centennial Ice Rinks has linked its season pass to the photo ID card currently used as a season pass for Centennial Family Aquatic Center. The same photo ID card is also used as a membership card to Wilmette Tennis Club, Wilmette Golf Club or the Center Fitness Club. If you already hold an Aquatics Center season pass or membership to one or more of these facilities there is no need to get a new photo ID card. Simply fill out the application form for a Centennial Ice Rinks Season Pass and upon verification of your application and payment of fees your card will be ready to use at the Ice Rinks. Season Pass application forms are available at the Wilmette Park District Administrative Office, Community Recreation Center and Centennial Recreation Complex office.

Season Pass Guidelines

  • Centennial Ice Rinks season passes are Photo ID cards which are renewable from season to season. The photo ID cards are to be used only by the person to whom they are issued and are not transferable.
  • All family members age 2 and older by January 2009, must have their own photo ID pass or pay a daily fee to skate at the Ice Rinks.
  • Wilmette resident senior citizens 65 and older, with proper identification (i.e., driver's license, state-issued ID, passport), applying in person, receive a 50% discount off the price of a season pass for ice skating.
  • The replacement fee for lost or damaged photo ID passes is $5.
  • In-Home Child Care Provider passes from the 2008 swimming season are not valid for the Ice Rinks. Child care providers must apply in person with a letter from their employer to prove employment before they can purchase a 2008-2009 Ice Rinks season pass. Note: In-Home Child Care Providers may not be counted as a family member on a family pass.
  • Application forms for Centennial Ice Rinks Photo ID Season Passes are available at the Wilmette Park District Administrative Office, Community Recreation Center and Centennial Recreation Complex office.
  • Season pass refunds are not given for any reason after the season begins.
