Community Partners

Community partners are integral for operations. The success of our parks system depends on the support, assistance, advocacy and enthusiasm of the public as stewards of their parks. 

Non-profit organizations, conservancies, community groups and businesses are invited and encouraged to partner with the City of Elgin Parks & Recreation Department to enhance and improve parks, increase recreational and cultural opportunities and preserve natural areas. Elgin Parks & Recreation is committed to partnerships that align with our overall mission, vision, values, and provide benefit to the public and the Elgin Park System. We actively seek partnerships with non-profit organizations, conservancies and businesses for park development, maintenance, management and programming.

Partnership Goals:
  • Enhance and expand public use of Parks' grounds and facilities
  • Encourage active recreation and helathy lifestyles
  • Improve environmental stewardship through public participation and education
