the Future of Aquatics at Belvidere Township Park District

Exciting developments are underway at Belvidere Township Park District as we embark on a journey to redefine aquatics for our community. We are conducting comprehensive aquatics market research to better understand the community’s needs and desires, resulting in conceptual designs to present to the community.  This will guide us in developing a plan for a future of aquatics within the township that aligns with our long-term vision and goals.

What to Expect:

    • Market Research: We’re listening closely to our community. With the help of industry experts, we are working through previously conducted surveys, focus groups, and consultations while analyzing what the region is already offering. These valuable insights allow us to see where and how new aquatic features could fit into the community, how much it will cost to run and operate a facility, and how large it should be for our size community. Research is being funded by a Donor Advised Fund through the Boone County Community Foundation and is being conducted by Counsilman-Hunsaker & Associates.
    • Conceptual Designs: Imaginations are flowing as industry experts work on conceptual designs that blend innovation with practicality, creating spaces that inspire and engage. A Donor Advised Fund is funding these designs through the Boone County Community Foundation and they are being created by Williams Architects.
    • Community Support: Once the first two steps are completed, we will seek community support to foster the concept’s development and plan for the future.
    • Long-Term Vision: We’re dedicated to creating a lasting impact, enriching the lives of our residents, and fostering a sense of community through the idea of a new aquatic feature within the township.
