It is the purpose of the Gardner Parks and Recreation Department to establish, preserve, and manage public parks, greenways, and recreation facilities and to offer a variety of leisure opportunities to benefit and enrich the quality of life for the people of the community.


The Sponsorship Program is designed to effectively market local businesses while making a positive impact on our community.  Unlike other traditional forms of advertising, sponsorships allow a business to be associated with the positive benefits of a community event or recreation program.  Many sponsorships provide opportunities to help brand your organization with logo distribution or giving away of items or to give people incentives to visit your place of business, for example.  Whatever your needs, we have sponsorship opportunities that can complement your plan.

What do sponsorships cost?

The Gardner Parks and Recreation Department offers a wide variety of sponsorship opportunities ranging from $50 for a single event to $5,000 for an exclusive title sponsorship of a large community event, with a lot in between!  Benefits are structured for each program/event and vary from a business name being printed on promotional collateral to a full package of recognition strategies.
