West Chicago Park District offers new advertising and sponsorship opportunities

As you plan for this new year, the West Chicago Park District would like to invite you to take advantage of unique advertising opportunities to promote your business within the community.

The Annual Appeal is a consolidated effort of sponsorship procurement for the year. By becoming a sponsor you will increase the visibility of your business, generate brand awareness and gain the many benefits of being a Park Partner.

The West Chicago Park District, established in 1972, is committed to creating an enhanced quality of life through effective programs, progressive facilities and the preservation of parks and natural resources. The district maintains over 400 acres including Reed-Keppler Park, the ARC Center, TreeTop Escape, Turtle Splash Water Park, Toucan's Hideaway, two splash pads, ZONE250, two dog parks, a skate park, picnic shelters, multiple sports fields, playgrounds, and more.

Here are a few of the sponsorship and advertising opportunities for 2023:

• Event sponsor: Individual event sponsorship opportunities offer low-cost options to best fit your budget and advertising needs. These a la carte choices provide ample exposure to a singular event and target market. Benefits include your logo on marketing materials, a thank you acknowledgment during the event and more.

• Online and digital ads: If you have a business with a small advertising budget, then this is an advertising opportunity to market to the entire community at a very affordable price. Reach the thousands of people that visit the ARC Center weekly by advertising on the ARC Center monitors or placing your ad on the fitness monitors that capture the attention of over 1,200 members.

• Athletic fields & facilities sponsor: Athletic field and facility sponsorship opportunities support fitness members, athletic teams, and overall field and facility success. Banners and other signage provide brand exposure to hundreds of people every day as they visit the ARC Center, Turtle Splash Water Park, and the disc golf course at Kress Creek Farms Park.

• Recreation program sponsor: Directly impact the West Chicago community by supporting youth sports leagues, preschoolers, summer camp attendees, or active adults.
