Athletic Field Advertising Program


The City of Kirkland Parks and Community Services Department has established the Athletic Field Advertising program to implement standard procedures concerning advertising and signage on outdoor athletic field fences (softball/baseball/multipurpose) in City parks. The purpose of this program is to allow selected youth sports organizations using City parks the ability to display sponsor banners on identified park fences. A permit must be obtained prior to hanging a banner in any City park.

The City of Kirkland encourages funds generated by these sponsorships to be used to provide “scholarships” to participants who may not otherwise be able to participate with that organization.

This program does not guarantee a right or entitlement for any user group to place a banner advertisement in any city park facility.
