Some programs have different fees for residents and non-residents. Non-residents must pay an additional surcharge established by the Parks and Recreation Department. More than half of the participants in many of our programs live outside the City of Hastings and the cost of supplying these programs comes exclusively from City of Hastings taxpayers; fairness requires that non-City residents share the burden of expense. The City of Hastings Parks and Recreation Department reserves the right to remove anyone falsifying information from our programs. Please call our office if you have any questions regarding residency.
Am I a resident of Hastings?
A resident of Hastings is anyone who lives within the city limits of Hastings which is not necessarily the 55033 zip code. City and zip code boundaries are not the same. Even though your mailing address is Hastings this does not necessarily mean you are a City resident. If you live in a township, you are not a City resident.
What types of payment does HFAC accept?
We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. We no longer accept personal checks.
What is the HFAC refund policy?
The City of Hastings does not issue refunds for inclement weather. Please watch the forecast for the day of your planned visit to Hasting Family Aquatic Center. If you have any questions, please call (651) 480-6179.
