Banner Sponsorship Program


Effective the spring of 2015, the City is launching a Banner Sponsorship Program at the very popular Steven J Underwood Memorial Park just off S. 216th Street and/or the Des Moines Field House Park off 220th Street. The City will have either a 4’x4’ or 4’x8’ banner made with their logo and information to promote their business to the community for either one or three years. Thousands of athletes and fans of all ages visit these locations from March through November annually. Typically, these parks are booked solid so the banner would receive tremendous exposure. For more information please contact Janet Best by phone at 206-870-6547 or send an email
