Peoria Park District has several vendor and contractor opportunities available throughout the District.  It is the focus of Peoria Park District staff and board to ensure that those we serve and those we work with look like the residents of our community.  As such, it is a priority of the District to encourage maximum participation of minorities and women on Park District contracts, bids and vendor opportunities, regardless of the size of the contract, bid or vendor opportunity.  District staff and trustees are committed to working together to improve current participation rates at all levels.

Please note if you’re interested in any construction project that is currently out to bid or the results of a sealed bid, please visit our Planning, Design, and Construction website.

This list is solely for the purpose of supplementing the advertisement or notification requirements otherwise used, in order to avoid even the appearance of favoritism or lack of fair competition in the District’s purchases.
