Financial Assistance


At Davenport Parks and Recreation, we are constantly striving to create new resources for families to access our programs. We offer a variety of options for financial assistance and scholarships:

All Davenport residents, receive 20% off all programming. This was established by our City Council. As taxpayers, residents are helping to subsidize our programs.
