Pekin Park District Facilities Unite Under One Cohesive Brand
Pekin Park District (PPD) is excited to announce a new and modern brand for its organization, parks, golf courses and district run facilities in Mineral Springs Park with eight new logos that will unite its diverse programs and services. Included in the rebrand are the following: Pekin Park District, DragonLand Water Park, Magic Dragon Mini Golf, Parkside Fitness, Miller Center, Lick Creek Golf Course, Parkview Golf Course, and Veterans Memorial Arena.
“Pekin Park District offers our residents so many programs and services, but prior to the new brand launch, they may not have known these facilities were part of the PPD family,” said Cameron Bettin, Executive Director for the Pekin Park District. “This redesign modernizes the look of the Pekin Park District as a whole yet still honors the traditions of our 117-year history with the incorporation of our iconic Pavilion.”
“This is one important step the Park District is taking to achieve our new strategic vision. All our diverse offerings are now tied to one easily identifiable and iconic brand. We also retain our strong sense of tradition while progressively meeting the changing needs and desires of our valued users. We look forward to showcasing all that we will provide residents in 2020 and beyond as our planning process continues,” said Gary Gillis, Commissioner, Pekin Park District Board.
