Resident Card Information

Resident Card Requirements

A current resident card is required for access to the Community Center and Civic Center East, to obtain picnic permits, admittance to White Birch Bay Aquatic Center, to fish at Truman Park Pond, and to receive resident rates for classes and room rentals. Everyone, age 6 and older, should have his or her own resident card. Non-Residents wishing to use the Recreation Facilities must obtain a City-issued ID card for facility access. Card fee is $3.00.

To get a Resident Card, you will need:

  1. An unpaid bill from the past 30 days showing your name and address
  2. Photo ID


1. Adult family members may obtain cards for family members, age 6-20, upon meeting proof of residency requirements and completing resident card application procedures. Because the cards are printed immediately on site, all family members are encouraged to be present at the time of application.

2. Adult family members, age 21 and older, residing with parents/guardians must present their own current proof of residency and photo ID when applying for resident cards. Such individuals may not obtain cards for other family members.

Disc Golf – Since 1979

Disc Golf combines the favorite American pastime of throwing flying discs with one of the world’s greatest sports-golf. Players count how many “strokes” (throws) it takes to get from the tee to the basket using aerodynamically designed golf discs. This fun and inexpensive sport is played throughout the U.S., Europe, Japan and as far away as Australia. Hazelwood’s White Birch Park is home to an 18 hole course that challenges you to negotiate many tree obstacles and a winding creek. We invite you to try this popular sport on our course.

Merchandise Available

A full line of golf discs by Ching, Discraft, Innova-Champion, Lightning & Millennium are available for sale at the Hazelwood Community Center office located next to the course. There are also disc golf bags, towels, T-shirts, and mini discs to satisfy your disc golf needs.
