Advertising & Sponsorships
Reach New Audiences
Our Destination Recreation brochure offers a unique opportunity to promote your business or organization. We have a variety of ad sizes at affordable rates. Your advertising dollars go far with our brochure’s long shelf-life of six months!
Destination Recreation is available in print and online to Parks & Recreation’s entire customer base, and is distributed twice annually through County government offices and the James City County and Williamsburg libraries. Over 8,000 school-age youth in Williamsburg/James City County public schools receive the brochure electronically.
James City County Parks & Recreation offers many sponsorship and donation opportunities for businesses and organizations.
