Your support goes a long way

Your purchase of a City of Reno license plate will provide dedicated funding for Parks and Recreation programs. Each license plate would provide $20 ($25 in the first year) that would go directly to Parks and Recreation programs offered throughout the City of Reno. We need your help though. We need a minimum of 1,000 people to purchase a City of Reno license plate in order to get that funding.

1,000 license plates  = $25,000

10,000 license plates = $250,000

What could be done with $250,000 in dedicated funding? Here are just a few examples:

  • New fitness equipment and refinishing gym floors at recreation centers
  • Re-plastering of City pools – adding years to the life-span
  • Picnic shelter at Reno Sports Complex
  • Shade structures at Reno Tennis Center
  • Replacement of scoreboards at Reno Sports Complex and Idlewild fields
  • Replacement of community playground or neighborhood park playgrounds
  • Replacement of 2 deteriorated park bathrooms
  • Reconstruct 1-2 miles of paved trails
  • Replace/rebuild the Idlewild Park train and track with a new, larger model
