Park Rules and Regulations
Cranston Park Rules & Regulations
The Cranston Residents Associations (CRA) will strive to enhance the enjoyment of members’ lives and promote community spirit by offering amenities, facilities and programs for members’ benefits in a financially responsible manner.
The Cranston Amenities are for the exclusive use of Members of the Cranston Residents Association and their guests. Until the community has reached a self-sustainable level, this rule will be relaxed to allow outside residents to register for programs and rent the Century Hall. A non-resident fee will be added to the cost of any registered program(s) and/or rental booking(s). This resident and non-resident fees entitles you access to the Century Hall Facility and/or Park Amenities where non-scheduled programming is occurring. However, only residents and their guests will be permitted to use the facility or park.
All such members and their guests are permitted the use of the Century Hall Facility and/or Park Amenities at their own risk and subject to the following rules and regulations.
- Membership fees are mandatory and are due April 1st of every year.
