Naming Rights Program

The Naming Rights Program allows business and organizations to sponsor a park or park amenity to bring focus to their brand. Not only are donors recognized at the park, they are highlighted on this website, in the Engage! publication and more. The program not only provides a benefit to the donor, but the community as portion of donations received are leveraged with other funds to implement capital improvements in the Novi Parks system.

Highlighted below are Naming Rights Program Sponsors.
