Last Chance to Replace (or pick up) old Belvidere Park Dedication Benches
November 5, 2020
The Belvidere Park District would like to take this opportunity to inform patrons of a change that will occur with regard to the dedication bench program in Belvidere Park. The vast majority of wooden benches in the park have exceeded their twenty year life time expectancy. The district has attempted to contact those purchasers of benches that exceed the 20 year life expectancy in the past 6 months via letter or website posting of this information, allowing them the opportunity to purchase a new bench to replace their existing bench with the new style of bench, which has been installed in front of Rivers Edge. When a wooden bench, reaches the 20 year mark, that original purchaser will be notified and given the same opportunity. All 20-year old benches will be removed by June, 2021.
We will allow the original purchaser, the opportunity to purchase the new style bench at a cost of $1,700.00, and take their existing bench currently installed in the park if they so desire. If one chooses not to purchase a new bench, the bench will be removed and that location would be forfeited, and would then become available to the public to purchase a new bench at that location.
The District has determined that some locations may be omitted due to flooding and overcrowding of benches in certain locations. If you choose to obtain your current bench please contact Todd Bex, Superintendent of Parks, at 815-547-5711 Ext. 12 to make arrangements for park staff to disassemble and load your bench into your appropriate vehicle. The pick up dates are the 1st Saturday of every month, Oct-June, 2021; 8-11am at our Revlon Drive maintenance campus, 6575 Revlon Drive.
