Meet Our Partners

Community Partnerships and intergovernmental cooperation are a key part of the success of park districts, forest preserves and conservation, and recreation agencies. Through partnerships, our agency can deliver essential services more efficiently, thereby saving taxpayer dollars.

The Springfield Park District has developed numerous partnerships, affiliations, and agreements with individuals, businesses, organizations, and other government agencies that help to make our community a better place to live, work, and raise a family. The Springfield Park District would like to extend a warm thank you to all of our community partners who have dedicated time, resources, and expertise to make improvements in our parks and facilities.
