Washington Park

park and memorialThe Village's one and a half acre downtown park, is where community celebrations such as the Annual Bellevue Car & Truck Show take place. It also is a favorite gathering spot for family gatherings and picnics in the summer months. The park has a large pavilion with picnic tables, a playground with swings, slides, a whirly and other equipment, and a canopy of trees that provide relief from the hot summer sun. The park is also home to several memorials that honor and remember past residents of the community.

Jefferson Park

A two acre park, located one block east of N. Main St. The park along with the Village water tower and iron removal plant take up a village block. This park is home to the Village's basketball courts and soon to be the home of our new skate park. The park is a hot spot for the youth in the community and pick up games of basketball are easy to come by during the summer months.

The Village is also home to two Eaton County Parks with a third just outside of the Village Limits; Keehne Environmental Center, Butler Park and Dyer Kiln Park.
