Belvidere Township Reviews

3 reviews
I grew up going to the public school system of Belvidere, and I cannot say I have any regrets about the teachers, staff, and community I was surrounded by in District 100. Belvidere is a great small town and offers plenty of activities during each season that are sanctioned by the Belvidere Park District. The Dari Ripple and swinging bridge along the river are iconic, as well as the Frisbee disc golf course set up at Belvidere park.
Review Belvidere Township
Locally not too much, typical small town fast food restaurants.
blue collar area, lot's of people employed at the nearby Chrysler plant
