Sponsorship Opportunities

Hayden Parks & Recreation relies on the generosity of both individual donors and the business community for helping to promote and produce events and youth programs that our community has come to expect. Only through these kind acts are we able to keep registration costs low for our youth programs and maintain free admission to our community events. Sponsorship opportunities are available for several events and youth programs throughout the year.
