Members and Access Cards

Park 96 is available for the exclusive use of the homeowners of the community of Parkland who are paid up Members in good standing of Park 96; and their invited guests.

Each household will be issued one Park 96 access card that allows entry at the main gate to the Park. If additional cards are required, they may be purchased from the business office at a cost of $25.00. A MAXIMUM of 3 (three) cards are allowed per household. Please notify the business office if you have lost your card so it can be cancelled. A replacement card can be purchased through the business office at a fee of $25.00. If a card is damaged and no longer allows access, the damaged card must be returned to the office for a replacement; otherwise a charge will apply.

It is a breach of rules and regulations to lend a valid Park 96 Access Card to another person, whether they are a Park 96 member, non-member or non-resident. Doing so may result in the suspension of Park 96 privileges for the cardholder and/or homeowner.

Members must present their access card to the card reader upon entry to the Park. Members accessing Park 96 and its amenities are required to carry their membership card at all times and present it for inspection upon a request by a member of the Park 96 Maintenance or Office Staff.

Membership cards remain the property of Park 96. Park 96 Management may require such cards to be returned if the owner of the card breaches the Rules & Regulations of Park 96.

Homeowners or residents eligible for membership cannot be signed in as guests. Guests within Park 96 must be accompanied by a Member at all times and it is a breach of Rules & Regulations to share a Park 96 access card or give the access card to a non-member.
