Sponsor & Partner Opportunities Personalized to YOU! The Peoria Park District supports its communities in many ways. From hiking, biking, and skating, to parks, pools, and golf courses, the District provides unmatched spaces and places. Combined with programming and special events, the District reaches over 500,000 participants each year… and you can too!

The Peoria Park District is committed to providing the same level of support to our donors by developing meaningful, personalized partnerships that meet your goals, while also helping to make our communities more vibrant and healthy.

As such, the District’s partnership approach is not “one size fits all” but rather dynamic and customizable… and support extends beyond a single event or activity.

Your Parks. Your Way.
