Park Pass Information

Obtaining a Park Pass

St. Clair Shores parks are open to all residents; however, the three waterfront parks require passes to access. Purchase park passes at the Parks & Recreation front desk inside the Civic Arena. Please bring a valid photo ID to verify SCS residency.

Non-residents are not able to purchase park passes. Residents with passes are allowed up to five guests. Guests of park passes do not have to be residents.

Special events like Music On the Lake, Farmers Market, or Food Truck Rallies do not require park passes.
